Significant causes of major workers' compensation claims

Even in lines of work that people in Portland, Oregon, might think of as safe, employees can get severely injured in a lot of ways. These so-called catastrophic work injuries can, in one fell swoop, lead to millions of dollars in workers' compensation payments in the form of medical bills, rehabilitation expenses and lost wages.

Representation of workers exposed to toxins

A previous post on this blog talked about how employers in Portland and the rest of Oregon have an obligation to protect their workers from exposure to chemicals and other toxic substances. When toxins have to be used in the course of a business's trade, then an employer has to take appropriate safety precautions and provide the equipment workers need to keep themselves from getting sick.

Marijuana, drugs a problem on Oregon roads

Most Oregonians know by now that marijuana is allowed under the laws of this state. No matter how one feels about this issue, it is hard to deny that this change has made an impact on traffic safety, particularly with respect to car accidents related to drugged driving. Although the long-term effects of marijuana are debatable, most people acknowledge that it can impair a person's driving ability, as can other drugs like alcohol.

Oregon employers have a duty to protect workers from toxins

Even though there are constant efforts in Oregon to improve the quality of the environment generally and, in particular, within the workplace, the reality is that many workers in the Portland area still have to work with or around chemicals that are known to be toxic and hazardous to one's health.
