Sawdust at sawmill traps and kills man in pickup truck


Few, if any, workers go to the job expecting a workday to be their last day alive. Even so, death on the job is a sudden and horrific reality for hundreds of Americans every year. In Virginia, workers are injured every day because of unsafe working conditions. For this reason, workplace safety is a primary concern for the state as well as the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the Department of Labor, both of which have issued guidelines that every employer must follow to ensure the workplace is safe and workers are protected from physical and psychological trauma.

Do employers need to protect temporary workers?


In today's economy not everyone is a full time employee. In fact, there are a lot of different arrangements that a person can fit into. Some employees can be part-time, others are independent contractors and some are only temporary workers. With all these different options, people may wonder whether employers are responsible for keeping these employees safe. In particular, temporary workers that may not be at one place for a long time may question if they are protected at work.

Proposal by OSHA would have safety reports available to public

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration will propose a major change to the way workplaces and employers would report any accidents or health-related mishaps on their premises. The potential rule would force companies with at least 250 employees to file an electronic report to OSHA every quarter (there are roughly 38,000 employers that fulfill this condition), while companies with at least 20 employees (and other employers who work in high risk industries) would have to file the same electronic report once per year.
