Warehouses pose numerous safety risks to workers

These days, online shopping offers considerable convenience for numerous people in North Carolina and beyond. Of course, online retailers often need large warehouses to store and ship products from, which means that online shopping also offers certain job opportunities. If you work in a warehouse, you may enjoy the rhythm of your day as you store, retrieve or pack items. However, if your employer does not keep safety a top priority, you could face on-the-job hazards.

Work injuries: Do you have repetitive strain injury?

Whether you report every day to a brick and mortar office in North Carolina or work from home, you may be at risk for on-the-job injuries. Especially, if your work involves typing, standing for long hours on an assembly line, or lifting and loading objects on and off a truck. While these types of jobs may not be as dangerous as working on electrical wires or using heavy agriculture machinery, office work or any job that requires repeated motions or postures carries a significant risk for repetitive strain injury (RSI).

A denied workers' comp claim: What's next?

A work injury can be expensive. If you were hurt at work, you may need medical care and time away from work to recover. Doctors and necessary treatment can be costly, and if you are unable to work, you are not bringing in your normal paycheck. This can be financially devastating for a North Carolina family, especially when there are other bills to pay.
