workers' compensation Archives

Most common causes for workers' compensation benefits claims

Some workplace injury hazards are common to all industries nationwide, including Alaska. From construction workers to office workers, any employee can slip and fall on slippery walking surfaces, and dropped tools are as dangerous as a tall stack of merchandise that topples over and lands on a worker. Also widespread are musculoskeletal injuries caused by wrong lifting techniques and vehicle accidents.

Workers' compensation and safety training are both necessary

Working in the oil fields on the North Slope of Alaska comes with inherent risks as do many field jobs in the energy industry. Proper safety procedures and precautions can help reduce the risks and help ensure that workers get home safely. Energy companies across the state are introducing new training methods to try to improve the safety of workers. In the event of an accident, workers' compensation insurance requires that the accident be reported.

Workers' compensation can aid veterinary workers

A love of animals leads some to consider a career working with animals, perhaps as a veterinarian or a veterinarian's technician. Animals can be cute and cuddly but they can also be dangerous. An animal that is injured or ill may act aggressively in an unfamiliar setting. Anyone who is injured on the job may benefit from being familiar with worker's compensation laws in Alaska.

What are the “fatal four” accident types in construction?

As you know, you can get hurt on the job in any industry, but some industries are more dangerous than others. Construction ranks near the top of the list for hazardous jobs in Alaska and elsewhere. You may be interested to learn that some accident types are common in the construction field, accounting for more serious and fatal injuries than other mishaps.

The link between firefighting and cancer

No one wants to think about the potential dangers they face each day when they show up to work in Alaska, but the state’s firefighters often face such hazardous conditions that they simply cannot ignore the risks. At Kalamarides & Lambert, we understand that firefighters face numerous work-related hazards due to the extremely dangerous nature of firefighting, and we also recognize that today’s firefighters face an elevated risk of developing work-related cancer.
