Workplace safety: Tree trimmer without harness falls to his death

The ideal circumstances for workers in all industries in New York would be for company owners to comply with safety regulations. Although the Occupational Safety and Health Administration prescribes strict safety regulations for each industry, some employers fail to develop protocols designed to ensure workplace safety. Workers who are not informed of the potential hazards presented by their tasks, and trained in avoiding the dangers, may be putting their lives on the line.

Protecting workers during the cold winter months

At times, winter in New York City can be brutal. Bone-chilling cold, snow and ice are all par for the course this time of year and employers should take steps to protect employees from suffering the ill-effects of all three. Regarding the actual cold temperatures, workers who work outdoors or in unheated warehouses are not only at an increased risk of suffering frostbite and hypothermia, but also dehydration. It's important, therefore to ensure that workers take breaks from the cold, have access to water and wear appropriate winter gear.
