What are your thoughts on forklift safety?

In many industries, the use of a forklift is a way of life. Even if you're not using one of these vehicles, there's always someone in close proximity doing so.

While there is no denying the benefits of using a forklift to complete a job, don't ever forget that it can also be a safety hazard.

What are the top symptoms of a herniated disk?

Suffering any type of back injury can turn your life upside down. Not only can this cause pain and discomfort right now, but it also has the potential to linger for the rest of your life. This is why it's so important to understand your injury and the type of treatment that's available.

A herniated disk is one of the most common types of back injuries. This can be the result of many accidents, such as a slip and fall, car crash or blunt force trauma.

Shoulder sprain: From diagnosis to rest

A shoulder sprain can lead to quite a bit of pain and discomfort, as well as an extended period of rest. Even if you don't use your shoulders often at your place of employment, such as to lift heavy items, you could still suffer this type of injury at some point.

If you have reason to believe you're dealing with a shoulder sprain, don't hesitate to seek medical attention. Your doctor will examine both shoulders, as it gives him or her the opportunity to compare the injured one with the healthy one.

Proper lifting technique: Easier said than done

Depending on your profession and the industry in which you work, it's not out of the question that you may find yourself lifting heavy items, day in and day out.

While proper lifting technique can go a long way in keeping you safe, there is no guarantee that you will never suffer an injury.

Many workers count on their income for life's necessities

Being hurt on the job is a nightmare for many workers. While some people have the luxury of being able to take time off of work without worrying about finances, other people can't do this. Some employees count on their income to make ends meet and pay for the things they need in life.

We understand that you need to take time off of work, but balancing that with the need to heal after the injury is something that is hard to do. Workers' compensation coverage might be the answer to this conundrum.

An ankle sprain is more serious than it sounds

There is a good chance you have suffered an ankle sprain at some point in your life. For example, this is common among young children who like to roughhouse and enjoy themselves outdoors.

With most ankle sprains, you'll immediately feel pain and discomfort. Furthermore, don't be surprised if bruising and swelling set in right away.

Symptoms and first aid for a kneecap dislocation

A kneecap dislocation is every bit as painful as it sounds. For this reason, you hope to never find yourself dealing with this injury in the future.

Unfortunately, there could come a time when you suffer a kneecap dislocation, such as if you fall at your place of employment.

Do you make it a habit to follow these ladder safety tips?

Using a ladder sounds like a simple task, but it's this mindset that could lead to trouble at some point in the future.

If you don't understand the ins and outs of ladder safety, there's a good chance you could make a mistake that leads to an accident.

Concussion symptoms fit into 4 categories

A concussion is a serious injury that can impact your life in a number of ways. While most people are able to recovery from the symptoms in a reasonable period of time, this is not always the case. It's possible for symptoms to last for several weeks, months or even longer.

Concussion symptoms fit into four categories:

  • Thinking and remembering
  • Physical
  • Emotional and mood
  • Sleep

Is it time to amend your will?

If you already have a last will and testament, congratulations — you've taken an important step toward protecting yourself and your loved ones, one that far too many adults never take. However, even those with wills may leave their loved ones and beneficiaries with confusing instructions or unclear wishes without reviewing and amending the document from time to time.

A number of significant life events may indicate that it is time to review and possibly update your will. In some cases, this kind of regular maintenance merely makes the process of honoring your wishes simple and straightforward for your loved ones when you pass away. This alone is well worth the effort. Dealing with the passing of a loved one is often difficult enough without complications in a will.
