Connecticut nonfatal injury and illness rate higher than nation's

Connecticut workers may be surprised and dismayed to learn that they live in one of the 21 states that have an incidence rate of total recordable cases of nonfatal injuries that was significantly higher than the national rate. With more than 36,000 nonfatal illnesses and injuries at work recorded by the Bureau of Labor Statistics in the state in 2015, the incidence rate was of 3.2 cases per 100 equivalent full time workers, compared to a national rate of 3.0.

Which workplaces have the most workplace injuries?

Connecticut residents go to hospitals to get treated for their injuries and illnesses, which is why they might consider it one of the safest places to be in. However, caregivers take their ethical duty to no harm to their patients at a considerable risk to themselves-they often put their own safety in front of their patients and end up injuring themselves in the process.

Exposure to workplace chemicals, hazards can lead to illness

When Connecticut residents think about workplaces where chemicals may be present, large factories, manufacturing plants and other industrial sites may come to mind. However, chemicals in some form or fashion are present in practically every office, store, restaurant and other locations where a person may hold down a job. From cleaning supplies to ink toner, workers are often exposed to substances that could pose risks to their health.

Get compensated for an injury suffered in a workplace accident

In today's tough economic times, Connecticut residents are thankful they have a steady job that provides them with the means to fulfill their financial obligations and live comfortably. However, they are not aware that, regardless of the type of office they work in, whether their work is primarily indoors or outdoors, they are entitled to certain safety rights that their employer must fulfill.

What are my workplace safety rights?

Workplace safety is an important concern for workers and their families. Because of the impact of workplace safety on the daily lives of so many, and the proper emphasis that should be placed on it in the workplace, there are certain important workplace safety protections workers should be familiar with. Workers and their families, however, may wonder what those workplace safety protections are.
