Dangers of hand-arm vibration syndrome

Although there are many work-related safety concerns during cold weather in Pennsylvania, construction and manufacturing employees are more likely to observe those related to footing, positioning and body temperature. Slips and falls or hypothermia are apt to be significant risks during the brutal winter months. While gloves would be used to protect against the cold, it is also important for those who operate tools that vibrate to realize that even short periods of hand exposure to the cold while working could contribute to irreparable damage in the form of hand-arm vibration syndrome.

Business owners should stress worker safety

Pennsylvania warehouses can be dangerous places to work. That is why it is so important for owners of these types of facilities need to take precautions to cut down on on-the-job injuries and to make employee safety a top priority for their business. Employers who don't think safety is important could get hit with expensive lawsuits from injured workers; they also might find their public image tarnished. Additionally, businesses that ignore worker safety may be subject to stiff fines from the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
