Are you at risk for an occupational lung disease?

If you are regularly exposed to toxic substances such as chemical fumes or asbestos at your job in Minnesota, you may expect your employer to provide you with a respirator that meets the standards set by the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration. However, there may be risk factors in your workplace that you are not aware of. The American Thoracic Society provides an in-depth look at the types of occupational exposures that could cause a particular type of lung disease known as Hypersensitivity Pneumonitis.

Utilizing your workers' compensation insurance, the right way

If you have been injured in an accident at your workplace, or have received an injury related to your job, you may be eligible to receive assistance from your workers' compensation policy. However, you may miss out on some of the valuable benefits of this helpful resource if you are not familiar with what actions to take. At Fellman Law Office, we are experienced in helping people in Minnesota to understand how to realize the highest benefit from their workers' compensation coverage. 

How do you encourage driver safety among your employees?

The employee drivers that keep your organization running are critical to the success of your company, but careless or distracted behavior and poor decision-making skills can put the lives of other Minnesota motorists at risk if your employees are dangerous drivers. Additionally, avoidable accidents can tarnish the reputation of your company and leave you with long-term damages. Fortunately, with proactive employee training and education, you can encourage your employees to operate their vehicles safely and in compliance with company-issued protocols. 

How much are your body parts worth?

If you sustained an injury on the job in Minnesota that results in a body part or function, you may rightfully assume this will lead to permanent partial disability. In fact, the State of Minnesota has decided what percentage of disability you sustain per body part or function lost.
