Workers' compensation covers all heat-related illnesses

For weeks now, the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health has been reminding business owners of their responsibilities to protect employees from heat-related illnesses.

However, the hospitality industry with facilities that have outdoor entertainment areas must not be forgotten. These could include children's play areas, patio dining establishments and sidewalk shopping venues.

Workers' compensation: MIPP might lessen benefits claims

On July 1, 2018, the Musculoskeletal Injury Prevention Program (MIPP) will become effective. This is a rule, approved on March 9, that requires establishments in the hospitality industry in California to create a program to address housekeeping hazards and then implement and sustain it. According to the California Workers' Compensation Information System, the average increase in injury claims by housekeepers is almost 900 every year.

Workers' compensation: What is SJDB and how does it work?

If there is one situation in which no worker in California would want to be, it is being unable to return to his or her regular job after suffering a debilitating injury.

Workers' compensation claim may follow construction site injury

The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health received notice of a recent construction site accident in Ventura County.

Increases to workers’ compensation disability rates welcomed

Every injured worker knows the sting of lost income. Trying to make ends meet is often hard enough before an accident causes a person to have to rely on disability benefits through the workers’ compensations system. This makes it important that the rates those benefits are based on reflect the realities that individuals and families are facing.
