OSHA offers no-cost safety program to small businesses

Electrical industry employers in Florida may be interested in the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) new initiative to increase safety. The initiative comes after several investigations into deaths and injuries in the electrical industry. The department is encouraging employers to decrease workplace hazards in order to reduce safety issues.

Causation difficult to prove in medical malpractice

Medical malpractice is when a healthcare provider harms their patient by providing a substandard level of care, but proving that negligent care was the actual cause of harm in any given case can be very difficult. In a lawsuit in Florida, the burden is on the patient to show that the provider deviated from the standard for care. Doing this requires analysis from medical experts who have detailed information about the care provided.

Tools to keep workers safe from the heat

Warm weather can have an impact on workers who spend time both inside and outside. Therefore, employers in Florida and elsewhere need to create a plan to help keep those workers safe. There should also be a plan in case an employee develops heat stroke or is otherwise harmed by exposure to heat and humidity. The plan should be tailored to the type of work employees do and other needs that they may have.
