How to make clubs and bars safer in Illinois

The June shooting at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando was another reminder that clubs and bars need to address security vulnerabilities. While it may be possible to avoid getting hurt or even take down an active shooter by running or fighting back, the goal is to prevent chaos if possible. For instance, adding metal detectors at entrances may make it harder for anyone to get a gun inside.

Workplace hazards faced by health care workers

Hospitals and other health care facilities employ a lot of people in Illinois and across the U.S. As the fastest growing industry in the country, health care provides jobs for over 18 million people. Many of these health care workers are exposed to health and safety hazards on the job every day. According to data from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, 6.8 percent of full-time health care employees suffered from a reportable work injury or illness in 2011.

Professional drivers must follow hours of service laws

A recent out-of-state case related to the trucking industry serves as a valuable reminder. Hours of service regulations are not simply safety recommendations. They are the law. Following those trucking laws is crucial to the prevention of the deadly kind of truck accidents that claim too many lives here in Illinois and across the U.S. every year. 

What Is An "intervening Accident "

Often a Petitioner is injured on the job while working. Everything is going smoothly as the insurance company is paying for the medical treatment for the injury; then the worker is involved in another accident or incident and the insurance company stops paying for the medical treatment. The insurance company alleges that the new accident or incident is an intervening accident and, as such, they are no longer responsible for any additional medical treatment.
