Scissor lifts and North Carolina workplace safety

When used properly, a scissor lift can safely transport a North Carolina worker vertically and to different locations within the work area. However, OSHA has found that employers are overlooking several issues that led to preventable injuries and deaths on job sites. By taking stability, positioning and fall prevention matters into consideration, it may be possible to reduce the number of injury accidents attributed to the use of scissor lifts.

The dangers of recycling and waste management work

Recycling and waste management workers in North Carolina and other parts of the country perform the nation's fifth most deadly civilian job, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. However, fatalities in the sector have been falling steadily in recent years, and 2014 saw the fewest waste management and recycling workers killed in workplace accidents since 2010. Reducing workplace accidents is a primary goal of the National Waste & Recycling Association, and the organization holds a week-long series of workshops and seminars every year to highlight safety issues.

Job-related hazardous energy accidents

Many workers in North Carolina work around machines that have the potential to become sources of hazardous energy. When machines are not properly shut down for maintenance and repairs, an unexpected startup could seriously injure or kill workers. Serious and fatal injuries can also occur while a worker is unclogging a jammed machine and the source of the jam suddenly clears.
