OSHA makes safety training ruling

Employers in Texas and throughout America must offer safety training to any workers who may face hazards on the job. Generally speaking, they may use computers as part of employee training efforts. While these can help workers learn important skills, OSHA says that computer or online training courses are not acceptable on their own. Instead, workers must be taught skills such as putting on protective equipment in an interactive and physical setting.

Workers' compensation insurance: the basics

In Texas, as in other states, most employers are required to carry workers' compensation insurance. In the event that employees are injured on the job, this insurance can cover a portion of the wages they lose as well as help them pay for their medical treatments. The insurance also covers funeral and burial expenses in case of a fatality. Death benefits can be paid out based on length of employment and annual income.
