Airports need to protect employees on the ground, too

Airport travelers mostly think about the annoying delays and the lines at check-in, but it's a whole crazy world behind the scenes. To the public, safety in flight is the number one concern and the people doing the legwork and operations on the ground are overlooked. The rush to stay on schedule creates a hectic workplace where accidents happen.

Police, Paramedics and PTSD: When on-the-job trauma affects your work

It's no secret the county workers who protect and serve our communities witness tragic events on the job. Public servants assigned to high-crime areas may endure numerous traumatic experiences in a single shift. From dealing with domestic-violence calls to car crashes, homicides to 4-alarm fires, for the police officers and paramedics who answer these calls, death and destruction is an all too familiar occurrence.

These are five of the most dangerous jobs in California

Everyone expects jobs like police work and firefighting to be dangerous, but you might be surprised that they are not considered among the top five, or even top ten, most dangerous professions in the U.S. That is because these professions have safety measures in place that help minmize risk.

Injuries on reality TV shows

People love action, especially where movies and television programming is concerned. This explains why more reality TV shows are being aired than ever before in history.

Ratings depend upon providing that stimuli.

Stress and your job: Can you get workers' compensation?

It's no secret that a high-stress job can cause health issues. Chronic stress -- whether you are a firefighter or you work in an office -- may contribute to high blood pressure and other risk factors for heart issues, including heart disease, aneurisms and heart attacks. It can also cause anxiety disorders, depression, chronic headaches, digestive problems, dermatological disorders and more.

Did you know? You can get workers' compensation for injuries caused by years of hard work.

When most people think of workers' compensation, they think of immediate, orthopedic injuries. Someone who fell off a ladder or was hit by a forklift at work is clearly eligible for workers' compensation. Yet, what if you have worked hard at a job for years and are now in constant pain from your job duties?
