Although workplace injuries can occur any time of the year, the summer season brings with it unique hazards that workers and employers should be particularly aware of. Here are some summer-specific safety tips that can be followed to help reduce the risk and severity of work injuries.
Work injuries and illnesses caused by exposure to summer heat are frequent occurrences, especially in industries that typically work outside such as construction, landscaping, and agriculture. Workers who spend too much time out in direct sunlight during the summer without taking proper precautions are at risk of severe sunburn and heat stroke. Tips to help reduce the risk of exposure injuries during the summer include:
Summer also brings many seasonal workers into the workforce, particularly high schoolers and college students who choose to work a summer job while on break from school. Young seasonal workers often work in the food service and hospitality industries where many businesses are only open during the summer months. Unfortunately, young workers often lack the experience needed to protect themselves from injury on the job. Young and seasonal workers coming in for a new summer job should be required to undergo a safety training program, which may include how to safely perform their job tasks and what to do in the event of an emergency.
While the summer season often means leisure travel for many families, it can also mean work travel for employees. Although domestic travel is relatively safe, workers who must travel abroad for business may want to keep a few safety tips in mind to avoid injury and illness, including:
Severe weather is also a common feature of the summer season, which can damage workplaces and require employees to engage in the cleanup. Tips to help keep employees safe from severe weather include:
A workplace injury can be devastating, particularly if it prevents you from returning to work for an extended period of time. Although New Jersey Workers’ Compensation laws are supposed to provide you with reimbursement for medical expenses and replacement pay for missed time at work, it is not always easy to get the Workers’ Comp benefits you deserve. That is why you should speak with a knowledgeable Workers’ Compensation lawyer about your situation and get guidance throughout the claims process.
