Nurses face higher risks for workplace violence

Nurses play a vital role in the health care system. These men and women generally spend much more time with patients than doctors and specialists. From managing patients' pain levels to even providing emotional support, nurses work tirelessly for their patients. On the other side of things, nurses receive very little support from the health care system. The exceptionally high rate of workplace violence against nurses is just one example of this.

Formaldehyde poses workplace injury risks in more than morgues

There are likely some workers in Minnesota who are exposed to dangers of which they are unaware. Employers must protect their employees against workplace injury and illness hazards, and that responsibility includes keeping workers informed about known risks. Formaldehyde is such a hazard that is not only used as preservatives in morgues but also in many other industries.

Crowd-related workplace injuries prevalent during shopping season

With the many promotional events and special sales arranged in Minnesota and across the United States in the time leading up to the holidays, workers in many industries face significantly more risks of workplace injuries than at any other time of the year. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration urges employers to plan ahead and provide employees with the training necessary to deal with potentially hazardous situations. Crowd-management planning is crucial for retail facilities at which large crowds are likely to arrive to purchase marked-down items at sales events.
