What is an ergonomic workplace injury?

Administrative workers in San Diego will likely agree that uncomfortable work environments can adversely affect productivity and also increase the probability of musculoskeletal injuries and eyestrain. For this reason, the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health provides guidelines for employers to assist with establishing ergonomically safe workstations to prevent workplace injury. Ergonomics involve adapting workstations and tasks to fit the worker to cause less physical stress that could cause debilitating musculoskeletal disorders.

California restaurants found in violation of employee rights

Certain locations of Cheesecake Factory restaurants were recently found to be in violation of proper employment practices. Several California locations of the restaurant were investigated and were found to be guilty of employee rights violations. The Labor Commissioner's Office awarded janitorial workers after the investigation was concluded.

If you are a security guard in California, becoming familiar with potential occupational hazards might help you to stay safe.
