Risk factors that may contribute to divorce

Connecticut residents and others have to work daily to keep their marriage a happy and successful one. However, there are factors that may increase a person's risk of getting a divorce. While these risk factors don't necessarily doom a marriage to failure, they do increase the likelihood of someone getting a divorce. For instance, individuals who had divorced parents are more prone to having failed marriages.

Blind spots happen off the road, too

Workers in Connecticut rely on their employers to establish and comply with proper safety procedures. Without these processes, all employees are at risk of on-the-job injuries that can have life-changing consequences. One area that employers sometimes ignore is that of the "blind spot" that workers can have while going about their daily tasks.

How to keep all workers safe despite their age

According to a Pew Research Center analysis of federal data, 18.1 percent of the workforce is age 65 or older. This means that employers in Connecticut and elsewhere may have to create safety plans that take into account various experience levels. They may also need to incorporate a variety of cultures and areas of expertise. Employers will also want to make sure that they aren't stereotyping workers while delivering messages that they are likely to best receive.

Serious knee injuries can occur at work: Learn your options

Workers who have to climb up and down ladders or do heavy lifting as part of their job duties might find that they have aches and pains on a regular basis. While a little discomfort might not be anything too concerning, there comes a point when discomfort turns to pain and it is obvious that something is wrong.

Falls a common cause of worker deaths

There were 937 reported deaths on construction job sites throughout the country in 2015. Of those deaths, 350 were related to falls, which means that it was the most common cause of accidental worker fatalities according to OSHA. To help make Connecticut workers and others safer, OSHA has been levying fines in certain cases. Repeat offenders tend to be more likely than others to face financial penalties after a violation.
