October 2018 Archives

OSHA to inspect open trenches and excavation

OSHA instituted a National Emphasis Program for trenching and excavation safety that went into effect on Oct. 1. Employers in New Jersey, especially those in the private construction industry, should be aware of the changes that will come with the NEP.

Excavation and trench workers have dangerous jobs

For construction workers in New Jersey, excavations can be particularly dangerous. Workplace injuries and even fatalities linked to excavations and trench-digging have been rising throughout the nation. In response to the concerns about dangerous workplace environments, OSHA has refreshed its National Emphasis Program on trenching and excavation. The 2018 update replaces an earlier instruction written over 30 years earlier in 1985.

Dealing with wrongful death cases in New Jersey

When someone in New Jersey dies due to negligence or misconduct, the death is a tragedy. The devastating emotional effects are also accompanied by practical losses; family members will have to survive without a loved one's income and their standard of living may change considerably as a result. Therefore, the surviving family members may bring a lawsuit against those responsible for the wrongful death in order to recover some of the damages suffered as a result.

Distinguishing LBD from other forms of dementia

Lewy body dementia is one form of dementia for which an early and accurate diagnosis is essential. LBD can progress more quickly than other forms, such as Parkinson's disease dementia, and those with LBD respond more poorly to certain medications for behavior and movement than those with Parkinson's or Alzheimer's. New Jersey residents may want to know how to distinguish LBD from other forms.
