Investigating workplace injuries and illnesses

No matter how thorough a company’s safety plans and procedures are, the risk than a job-related accident can happen always exists. So too can Minnesota workers suffer illnesses related to job environments, tasks or situations. These are some of the reasons that laws exist to mandate reporting and protections for injured or ill employees. Understanding what can and should be done is important for all who work in Minnesota.

High school scene of fatal work accident

For many Minnesota construction workers and their families, the fear of being involved in a fall from scaffolding or other high places while on the job is a daily reality. Even with strict safety protocols and laws in place, these accidents still seem to happen more frequently than one would wish.

Understanding silicosis risk for workers

Minnesota residents whose jobs entail working with sand, quartz, rock, or other materials containing silica need to be aware of the risks of developing silicosis. Healthline explains that when inhaled, silica essentially cuts into lung tissue, causing scars to develop on the lungs.

What workers’ compensation requirement do employers have?

If you work for someone else in Minnesota, you may automatically assume that there is help available if you are injured on the job. This is a logical assumption as the state laws do outline specific requirements for workers’ compensation insurance and coverage. However, there are also some exclusions to these mandated requirements and it is important for people to understand these to avoid being in a situation where there is no assistance possible.
