Temp workers' injuries double as number of workers grows

The threat of health hazards and injuries are common at many workplaces in Colorado, and they are usually taken seriously enough by employers to warrant extensive safety training and protective gear. According to research recently released by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, employers may not be exercising the same level of precautions when it comes to temp workers.

Colorado health care employees and new OSHA safety plans

OSHA has extended its National Emphasis Program on Nursing and Residential Care Facilities to address the epidemic of injured nurses in Colorado hospitals as well as the rest of the health care industry. OSHA announced that its 10 regional divisions would be conducting audits and fining hospitals and other care facilities for workplace safety violations. The health care industry has more reported workplace injuries than any other industry, according to the OSHA enforcement director.

Colorado construction workers and eye injuries

Workers in many occupations are exposed to hazards while on the job, but the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics ranks construction as one of the most dangerous when it comes to eye injuries. Colorado construction workers who work in the summer are often exposed to hazardous environmental factors such as UV rays from sunlight, heat, high winds and humidity, all of which contribute to eye injuries.

Hazardous nail salon chemicals a growing concern

Colorado residents may have noticed several recent news reports about the possible hazards of nail salon chemicals. New studies suggest that exposure to these chemicals could lead to health problems like cancer, asthma, respiratory disease and miscarriages. The concern is so great that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo issued new rules to protect nail salon workers in May after The New York Times published several reports highlighting the dangers of working with the chemicals.
