With a name like bronchiolitis obliterans, it can't be good, pt.2

Last week, we were discussing the situation of workers in jobs involving the roasting of coffee and how it may prove far more dangerous than would appear.

With a name like bronchiolitis obliterans, it can't be good, pt.1

For a coffee drinker, there is nothing like the smell of freshly ground coffee. A study by a Wisconsin newspaper and performed by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), which is part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) discovered that for those who work where coffee beans are roasted and stored, there is a significant risk of developing a serious and potentially deadly lung disease along with that delicious scent.

Sometimes, the workers' compensation fraud is an employer

We have all seen these types of stories in Wisconsin. They often involve video of workers who have falsely claimed some type of injury or disability and are receiving workers' compensation benefits. A news program may record video of them hunting, fishing, waterskiing or engaging in some other physical activity. They will detail the potential for prosecution for the fraud.

Process changes threaten Wisconsin workers' compensation system.

Changes to Wisconsin's workers' compensation law was signed by the governor in February was part of a process that has been used to amend workers' compensation laws in the state. But there is potential for changes that may not proceed in as orderly or reasonable a fashion in coming years.
