How can your employer keep you warm?

If you work primarily outdoors, you may view the coming winter in Wauwatosa with a certain degree of trepidation. Wisconsin is known for its frigid winters, yet even in those conditions, you still may be expected to work. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has no set statutes regulating how cold weather work must occur, but related laws still impose a duty of care on your employer for you and all of your coworkers. 

Software may help contractor reduce accidents

It is no surprise to anyone in Wisconsin that many people are injured or even killed while performing their jobs on construction sites. Even with strong laws in place that provide direction on proper safety procedures and required personnel education and management, accidents on construction job sites continue to happen. Some people might even believe it is just something to be accepted as part of the construction industry. Others, however, may have a different view.

Important details about OSHA's Focus Four

When it comes to staying safe while on the job, Wisconsin residents should be able to trust that their employers have established proper policies and procedures designed to keep everyone safe while performing their work. Part of helping make this happen and come to live is training not just supervisors and managers but all staff members.

Detailing whistleblower protections

It may be easy for workers in Wauwatosa to give their employers the benefit of the doubt when it comes to a company's commitment to employee safety (after all, everyone wants to believe that their employers put their well-being above all else). Yet another motivating factor as to why so many seemingly let their employers off the hook for safety violations may exist: fear. Many may fear that should word get out that they turned their companies in to corporate regulatory agencies, they will be retaliated against. Fortunately, the law does not allow for that. 

Can technology improve construction worker safety?

Anyone who works in the construction industry in Wisconsin knows just how many dangers abound on a regular basis on the average jobsite. Despite the fact that construction is an inherently dangerous occupation, it nonetheless remains a right of workers to know that their employers will take appropriate steps to ensure their safety. These steps may involve a variety of things from the implementation of safety protocols, worker training, equipment inspections and more.
