What kind of burns can people suffer on the job?

Louisiana industrial, oil and construction workers understand that their jobs can be dangerous. One jobsite risk involves skin burns. According to the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), over 40,000 people go to the hospital each year for burns. To avoid injury and possible death, Louisiana workers should be aware of the different ways a person can suffer workplace burns.

What you should know about sicknesses on cruises

Relaxing on the deck of a cruise ship in Louisiana waters is many people’s idea of a good time. Vomiting inside a guest cabin, on the other hand, is not. While cruises can be fun, they also confine a lot of people within a small area. Consequently, according to Marketwatch, it is easy for illnesses to spread. While cruises try to handle germ transmission through offering hand sanitizers and providing sinks to wash hands, people can still get sick on a cruise.

Can a fleet safety program benefit your company?

If your company in Louisiana requires you to hire drivers to run organizational operations, it is critical that you find individuals who have demonstrated responsibility and have a clean driving record. Your vigilance in implementing strategies designed to protect your drivers, as well as encourage them to be attentive and respectful to other motorists is critical to protecting the well-being and reputation of your company as well.

Much of rig work is done at night, during "shift hours," which, according to the US National Library of Medicine, is between 1900 and 0600 hours.
