3 common summertime workplace injuries and illnesses

Summertime is almost upon us, which brings a spike in temperatures and unique workplace safety hazards. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, exposure to high environmental temperatures caused 2,830 nonfatal injuries and illnesses and 37 deaths among workers in 2015. These staggering statistics demonstrate the toll that summer weather can take on employees. 

Can your employer make you see the company doctor?

Like most of your co-workers, you work hard to do your job every day. If you sustain a serious injury on a barge, rig or boat, though, your employer may not return the favor. That is, your employer may worry more about profits than your overall health. With maritime injuries common in summer months, you must have a strategy for taking care of yourself.
