Nurses beware: this is the biggest danger in the workplace

Imagine the dangers nurses face every day. Most people would picture open needles, biohazardous waste, wet floors, and angry patients. Surprisingly the biggest threat to nurses is lifting. In particular most nurses are injured on the job due to lifting patients who cannot walk.

Steel building collapse causes workplace injuries

Employers throughout the Colorado and the rest of the U.S. are responsible for maintaining the safety of their construction workers by ensuring the structural integrity of the facilities where work is being conducted. Otherwise, dangerous collapses may lead to serious workplace injuries. When construction companies failed to inspect ongoing construction projects, workers may suffer severe injuries by no fault of their own. New information shows that one Texas company is under fire from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration after failing to properly secure a structure that was being built at a university. Fines in the matter total nearly $50,000, according to official reports.

Better, stronger, faster... could bionic limbs be reality?

Colorado residents, the future may be upon us! A team of engineers have created what is now being referred to as the first "bionic man". The "bionic man" is actually a robot that engineers have been working on, using parts from over a dozen manufacturers. This type of technology has many implications, especially on aesthetic prostheses work. Whether an accident victim loses an arm, a leg, or even suffers a spinal cord injury, robotics technology could help that individual regain some functionality.

New study results could predict development of chronic back pain

It can be difficult knowing whether a back injury will heal itself quickly or lead to chronic back pain. But for a worker, a back injury that lingers can significantly impact their ability to do their job. But now, researchers believe there may be a way to identify chronic back pain early on.
