OSHA’s scaffolding requirements

Minnesota residents who are employed in jobs that require the use of scaffolding face the risk of serious injuries every day. An on the job accident that includes a fall from a scaffold or falls from ladders can leave you with with broken bones, back or spinal cord injuries and more. The Occupational Health and Safety Administration has clearly defined workplace safety regulations in place to guard against these situations.

Risks faced by construction workers

Minnesota construction workers know that they are employed in one of the most dangerous industries. Risking their lives every day is just a part of doing the job to people on a construction site. Because of the risks involved, there are many safety laws and rules that are intended to be followed on job sites. The goal of these guidelines is to prevent construction workers from suffering serious injuries due to an on-the-job accident.

Minnesota approves medical marijuana in workers’ compensation

Minnesota is one of the states to have legalized medical marijuana despite the fact that it remains illegal under federal law. The legal use of this drug for medicinal purposes in select states gives rise to the issue of how it should be handled in cases involving workplace injuries paid for by workers’ compensation benefits. Because the legalization of marijuana for medical uses is addressed at a state level and workers’ compensation is a state program, it is the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry that needed to make a decision about this.

How are lost wage benefits calculated?

Workers’ compensation provides several different types of benefits to people who become unable to work due to a workplace accident or occupational disease. These include coverage for medical expenses and vocational rehabilitation. Another very important type of benefit provides monetary compensation for lost wages. If you need to file a workers’ compensation claim, it is important to understand how the wage benefit is calculated.
