How double hearing protection works

New Jersey workers, regardless of their industry, can be the victims of excessive noise exposure. OSHA actually has a permissible exposure limit in place as a way to regulate noise exposure, but employers must do their part by setting up a hearing conservation program. As part of this program, employers must train employees on monitoring noise levels and provide them with the right hearing protection devices.

OSHA fines repeat violator after machine accident leads to injury

Companies are expected to keep employees safe from workplace hazards. Lockout/tagout procedures, for example, protect employees from the unexpected startup of machines, and machine guarding can keep workers' extremities from being caught or cut by machinery. Some companies fall afoul of OSHA by not incorporating these safety measures, and one such company in New Jersey has been fined three times now by the safety organization.

Flaggers at high risk for roadway injury, death

Controlling traffic flow in work zones can be a dangerous occupation. Flaggers in New Jersey should know that there were 132 people who died in roadway work zones in 2017. They were all killed in car crashes, usually involving a driver who was speeding or being aggressive.

Long hours increase risk of miner injuries

Miners in New Jersey and elsewhere are more likely to suffer workplace injuries if they work long hours, according to a new study.

An OSHA standard that could improve workplace electrical safety

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration presents a series of regulations and standards to help keep workers in New Jersey and throughout the U.S. safe while on the job. OSHA's NFPA 70E standard is meant to help both employers and workers ensure and improve workplace electrical safety. While some people do attempt to sidestep rules like this, it's generally agreed that proper implementation of the NFPA 70E standard is the better way to go for employers and independent contractors doing electrical work.

Maintaining outdoor worker safety in winter weather conditions

Unfortunately, not everyone has the option of heading indoors when temperatures drop in New Jersey. This is why businesses that employ outdoor workers are encouraged to take extra steps to ensure safety during winter. Employers should be certain that company vehicles are well-maintained, fall protection systems are set up for tasks involving heights and appropriate personal protective equipment is provided.

Retail employee safety is important around the holidays

Retail employees residing in New Jersey should be aware of safety risks associated with working over the holidays. OSHA, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, is taking the initiative to remind employers to take extra steps to focus on protecting retail workers and their pay. The fast-paced shopping environment surrounding the holidays leads to longer workdays and more demanding schedules for retail employees.

OSHA reveals top 10 workplace safety violations

Workers in New Jersey may confront an array of hazardous conditions in the workplace, especially when employers fail to abide by federal safety regulations. At the 2018 National Safety Council Congress, an Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) official presented a top 10 list of the violations most frequently cited by the agency in the past year. The statistics were collected between October 2017 and September 2018; for the most part, they reflected continuing concerns about unsafe environments that put workers at risk.
