Protecting Injured Workers
Hazardous conditions in pulp and paper mills can lead to a number of injuries and health conditions:
- Burns from steam
- Cuts and amputations from choppers and other machines
- Exposure to hazardous chemicals such as gaseous sulphur compounds, chlorine and chlorine dioxide
- Crush injuries from logs or large rolls of paper
- Health problems from inhalation of dust
- Lifting injuries
- Repetitive stress injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome
- Deafness caused by high noise levels
Navigating the Georgia workers’ compensation presents a second set of hazards for injured workers. Once you are injured, your employer may start to view you as an expense to be controlled rather than an employee who deserves compensation.
