Forklift safety tips

If you or someone in your family must regularly use a forklift while at work in Minnesota, it is important to understand the safety protocols that can help to prevent an accident. Even if you do not directly use a forklift yourself but are commonly around them while at work, you should be aware of some basic safety procedures in order to stay safe while on the job.

Waiting periods for workers’ compensation

If you are injured in an accident that happens while you’re at work or performing your job even away from your actual place of employment, you may need to file for workers’ compensation benefits. Understanding how this might work is important for you, especially so that you know about any potential waiting period. The Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry provides information about how wait periods may apply to a case.

Worker dies during shift change accident

Jobsite accidents can happen in any industry at any time but Minnesota employees in some industries may face a higher risk of these accidents than others. Workers in the construction, industry and transportation fields are among those who routinely experience more dangerous working conditions than do office workers, for example. The heavy machinery, high platforms and even vehicles that move at high rates of speed can all open up opportunities for accidents that can cause serious injury or even death to employees.

These are just some of the things that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration oversees.
