How do workers stay safe in confined spaces?

Many workers face dangerous conditions in Illinois that can put their lives at risk. Some of these conditions are so serious that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration has enacted rules to help guide employers to keep workers safe from harm in these cases. These rules help to prevent work related deaths and other avoidable injuries on job sites.

Employers in Illinois and throughout the country should take workplace safety seriously. They should follow safety regulations that have been adopted at the state and federal levels to keep workers safe from dangerous tools and other issues. These regulations have been enacted in order to try and reduce the number of serious injuries to workers. However, many companies still fail to follow even the most basic safety guidelines, and in the process they put their employees at risk. Sadly, this can cost workers their lives.

Nursing home deaths often kept secret

As people in Illinois age, it can be difficult for them to meet their day-to-day needs. While some people can rely on family members to fulfill these needs, others need to rely on the help of skilled nursing facilities. When people place a loved one in a nursing home, they expect that the facility will use the upmost care to take care of their loved one. However, this is not always the case. Individuals can suffer a variety of abuse while in a nursing home.
