Police looking for help in fatal California pedestrian accident

Police are currently seeking information about an accident that took the life of a man on the highway recently. The fatal pedestrian accident happened in California at night and took the life of a 24-year-old man. The driver who allegedly hit the man took off from the scene, and this has left police asking for help from the public.

The deadly hazards of methylene chloride exposure

Workers in many industries often work with chemicals that they know very little about. Unless they are specifically trained and carefully monitored by their employers and managers, workers can suffer serious injury, illness or death due to hazardous chemical exposure.

San Diego nail salon technicians often pay dearly for beauty

In cities across the country, nail salons dot the landscape, promising patrons perfectly manicured and polished fingernails and toenails. Manicures and pedicures are often credited with helping people both look and feel better. During 2013, according to Nails Magazine, the lucrative nail services industry enjoyed "record-breaking growth" of $7.47 billion.

Is your job literally making you sick?

From conflicts with managers or co-workers to a heavy workload and stringent deadlines, anyone who has ever had a job outside the home has likely experienced his or her fair share of job-related stress. In previous decades, workers were often forced to fall in line and grin and bear it or risk losing their jobs. Today, however, there is more awareness and focus about occupational stress and the related high costs for both employees and employers.

Employers must take steps to protect workers from asbestos exposure

Most San Diego residents have likely heard about the dangers associated with exposure to asbestos. Asbestos is a natural material that is known for its durability and "resistance to heat and corrosion." Today the use of asbestos materials is highly regulated and has been banned in many products, however, in past decades asbestos was commonly used in numerous types of building and construction materials and insulation.

More needs to be done to protect food and product manufacturing workers

When eating a strawberry-flavored cereal bar or enjoying a bag of microwave popcorn, few San Diego residents likely think about how such products are made. When something says it's strawberry flavored or smells like fresh flowers, American consumers fully expect a product’s manufacturer to deliver. As a result, during 2013 alone, the flavorings and fragrances industry reported profits of roughly $24 billion.

Workers in certain industries at higher risk of asbestos exposure

Suffering a workplace injury or illness can be, at the very least, inconvenient and painful. Workers may have to seek medical care and have to miss several days of work as a result. But in some cases, the result of a health problem suffered at work is that a person's life is in danger.

For U.S. women, workplaces can be hazardous to physical and mental health

Prior to the 1960s and the women's liberation movement, the majority of U.S. women did not work outside the home. In fact, information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that during the 1950s, only roughly 34 percent of U.S. women held a job outside the home. Today, the CDC estimates that number is around 60 percent as more women choose to pursue higher degrees and delay marriage and starting a family. For some working women, the financial gains associated with working outside the home may come at a cost to their personal health and safety.
