Pneumoconiosis causes and symptoms

Coal workers in Colorado and across the nation are often prone to get an occupational lung disease called pneumoconiosis. Commonly referred to as Black Lung Disease, pneumoconiosis is caused by inhaling coal into the lungs over a long period of time. After a worker inhales enough coal dust, breathing becomes more difficult for them as their lungs have hardened. Workers with pneumoconiosis may also be at risk for secondary conditions like lung cancer and pulmonary tuberculosis.

Toxic chemical exposure issues in the workplace

Colorado workers may be interested in some information about the seriousness of toxic exposure in the workplace. Due to the many types of skin disease and injuries possible and the large risk of exposure, employers should be taking serious precautions.

Nurses suffer high injury rates but receive little federal help

Nurses in Colorado may be at a higher risk for arm and back injuries than workers in any other field. Some people might think of construction as a field where people are frequently injured, but medical workers suffer many injuries due to having to move and lift patients.

OSHA holds Colorado employers responsible for fall protection

Coloradans who work in construction and other forms of heavy industry may be interested to know that the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety & Health Administration offers employers specific suggestions on preventing fall incidents. Noting that construction workers die because of falls on a yearly basis, the agency identifies a number of training-based and practical work procedures that should be employed to minimize workplace risk.
