Changing weather means more hazardous public areas

As we speed toward the holiday season, it is wise to consider some of the hazards that come with winter weather so that you can avoid injury. While poorly maintained public areas are always a hazard, they pose far greater risk to pedestrians when combined with winter weather elements like snow and ice.

Back injuries: common workplace injuries

Construction workers and those who perform related jobs are often at risk for serious injuries. They also have a higher risk for injuries that can seem more minor at the time, but that still have a significant impact on their ability to move freely and without pain. Because of that they can struggle to get work done, and they may need to take time off or move to a light duty assignment until they recover. That can cause them to eventually lose their job or look for another line of work, and can also cause construction projects to fall behind because of high injury rates for workers on that project. Back injuries often top the list.
