An in-depth explanation of workers' comp benefits

Whether you have been at a position for an extended period of time or just started a job, workers in Ohio and elsewhere do not always consider the risks and dangers associated with their job. While many safety measures are put in place, this does not always prevent workplace injuries or illnesses from occurring.

The basics of workers' compensation

Although a majority of employers take all the necessary precautions to assure the protection and safety of their employees, many occupations have inherent dangers and unforeseen accidents can occur to anyone at any time. Some occupations, such as construction workers, railroad workers and those in industrial fields know each day that something could happen and they could be injured at work,

These are the most cited OSHA violations

When Cincinnati employees go to work each day, they expect they will return home in the same condition each night.
