Workers' compensation benefits for depression

Were one to ask the average working professional in Glendale if their job was a source of stress in their life, they likely would get an answer in the affirmative. The expectations, deadlines, and standards that come from one’s career will almost certainly (at some point) generate a certain amount of tension. Couple that with the fact that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that 71 percent of American adults have claimed to have experienced at least one of the symptoms of stress, and one can see how depression and anxiety can be a very real problem in the workplace.

Construction worker accident factors

Residents in California who work in the construction industry or who have loved ones employed in a construction job know that the risk of experiencing an injury can be quite high on a job site. There are laws and regulations in place that mandate certain safety protocol and training processes but there is also the need for companies to properly follow those and create a true culture of safety. Sadly, this does not always seem to happen.

Common reasons for injuries on construction sites

The construction industry is potentially one of the most dangerous industries to work in. Construction worker injuries in 2009 accounted for 9% of all nonfatal workplace injuries in the United States. One of the reasons why there are so many injuries on construction sites is because the conditions faced by workers are inherently hazardous. Even though construction sites are highly regulated and many procedures are put in place to increase safety, many workers are injured every year.
