What is tendonitis and bursitis?

Have you noticed an ache or pain in your shoulder, elbow, wrist or other area that is unusual? If the area is marked by some swelling and even redness you may be experiencing symptoms associated with a repetitive motion injury. Many people in New York face these conditions often because of the activities they perform over and over again at their jobs. Repetitive motion injuries should be taken seriously in order to avoid further injury.

Little-known facts about workplace injuries

When most New York residents think of workplace injuries, construction and oil fields are typically the first industries to come to mind. However, a surprising number of nurses also experience injuries while on the job. While the injuries a nurse experiences may not initially appear as catastrophic as, for example, those caused by a falling machine or explosion, the detrimental effects of injuries and illness can be lasting. 

Common workplace injuries

If you have spent any time on a construction site in New York, you know the hazards are numerous. However, if the contractors or property owners on the job are lax in their maintenance and safety standards, your chances of injury may increase dramatically. Here at Rosenbaum and Rosenbaum Attorneys at Law, we recognize the gravity of workplace injuries.

OSHA investigations

When a New York resident is involved in an accident at work or develops an illness due to a work-related situation or environment, it may be necessary to have an investigation conducted to learn more about what may have contributed to the event or condition. This may be done by investigators from the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

OSHA regulations of toxic exposure

Employers in New York must follow regulations regarding toxic substances set by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. OSHA encourages employers to change to safer chemicals and substances whenever possible but recognizes that such transitions may not always be possible, especially if a substance is essential to the operations of a business. Due to this, it has enacted some regulations and requirements employers must follow to keep employees safe.
