Worker's Comp Claims Arising out of Hot Working Conditions

Although they are preventable, every year thousands of work accidents occur due to overexposure to heat - heat exhaustion, heat cramps, heat stroke, and indirect consequences of getting too hot, such as falls and equipment mishandling due to dizziness, disorientation, and fatigue. Do not hesitate to pursue a worker's compensation claim arising out of hot working conditions.

Employers have a responsibility to provide reasonably comfortable working conditions and regular breaks, and any workplace safety poster will tell you that safe working conditions are nationally enforceable by OSHA. Summer 2016 has already been very hot in Nebraska. In Lincoln and Omaha, the heat index has broken records on several days in June. Working outside in such hot conditions can be very taxing and potentially hazardous, and it is up to employers to know the risks surrounding outdoor work, to allow for frequent breaks in a shaded area, and to know when it is just too hot out for certain work to be done at all.

If you have been injured at work due to hot conditions that violate these guarantees under the law, contact us to arrange a free consultation and discussion of workers' compensation benefits.
