New tech could reduce construction injury for California workers

Construction can be a backbreaking job. Many workers in California will eventually face a construction injury, due to the labor intensive nature of the industry. As technology advances, new innovations are developed that can reduce or eliminate harms caused to workers while allowing the process to become faster and more efficient. 

3 common reasons California workers' comp claims are denied

One way that people are combating the opioid epidemic is by reducing the number of long-term opioid prescriptions for injured workers on workers' compensation. Numbers are dropping all over the country, including a small but significant drop in California, a recent study shows.

A recent news story tells more about one California organization that is working to end toxic exposure on farms, and tackling other farm issues that impact women.
