OSHA tightens standards for silica exposure

Employees in New Jersey and across the country may be concerned about the potential dangers of exposure and inhalation of respirable crystalline silica. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has published a fact sheet that aims to encourage compliance with its standards on exposure to the mineral product. Employers are mandated to take action to protect employees from silica exposure, including assessing the potential for exposure in the workplace, providing training and establishing clear plans in case of exposure.

When gallbladder surgery leads to bile duct injuries

Bile duct injuries occur in an estimated 1 percent of gallbladder operations. These injuries are caused by trauma during surgery, and they often lead to scarring and a narrowing of the bile duct, which is known as a bile duct stricture. Anyone in New Jersey who has undergone gallbladder surgery will want to be aware of the symptoms of such an injury and what can be done if he or she develops an issue.

OSHA makes silica exposure a priority with new fines

New fines have been put in place by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration for violations of the crystalline silica standard that became law in 2013. Constructions workers in New Jersey who cut, sand, saw or drill concrete or brick materials must follow safety protocols to avoid dangerous levels of exposure to health-harming silica dust.

It may take time to feel pain from your car accident injury

While many car accident injuries are immediately painful or plainly visible, some injuries do not cause pain to a victim until hours or even days after the accident. If a victim does not receive proper medical treatment as soon as the accident occurs, these injuries may worsen and draw out recovery time and suffering.

Proposals to help reduce risks to EMS workers

New Jersey paramedics have plenty to be concerned about when it comes to fatigue on the job. Because a major part of EMS work can involve vehicle operation in emergency situations, the impact can be catastrophic. The potential for serious accidents and injuries due to fatigue has inspired a collaboration between the National Association of State EMS Officials and the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center to develop guidelines that can reduce the likelihood of this.
