Wearable technologies can assist injury rehabilitation

The management of workplace injuries is changing due to smart technologies and wearable options. These technologies are being used to improve the quality of care and rehabilitation for Louisiana workers who are injured on the job.

Healthcare workers face on the job violence

People who do not work in the medical field might not expect some of the hazards nurses are exposed to while on the job. Nurses in Louisiana hospitals sometimes experience back strains from lifting patients and other similar work-related injuries, but the biggest danger workers in this field face is violence, primarily from patients.

Workplace safety

Employee safety should be a main priority for Louisiana companies as people are the cornerstone of their business. However, survey results from the National Safety Council indicate that many people believe that employee safety is not as important as it should be.

Teens face rising injury rate on the job

When it comes to work-related injuries, teens who hold summer jobs may be especially at risk. In 2015, slightly more than 400 people under the age of 24 suffered fatal injuries while on the job, according to an Occupational Safety and Health Administration report. Although these findings are not specific to the state of Louisiana, research supports at least one child labor specialist's belief that teens and young adults are more likely than older employees to be injured at work.
