2 health risks faced by office workers

New York office workers might think they have cushy jobs, but an inactive lifestyle sitting behind a desk and typing away at a computer for hours at a time can lead to serious health consequences. Let's take a look at two of the most common health problems faced by office workers:

The dangers of heat illness

Heat illness is a very real concern during the hot summer months in New York and -- for that matter -- anywhere else in the United States. Workers who need to perform their jobs outside in hot conditions for extended periods of time most at risk for contracting the most common forms of heat illness.

Know your options for addressing a work-related injury

You likely count on your ability to go to work each day. You need to be able to earn a living. So, what happens if you are injured and can't work? You might feel like this is a hopeless situation, but it isn't. You do have the option of seeking workers' compensation. This can cover the medical bills and might provide you with an income when you can't earn your paycheck.

When can I receive lost wages benefits?

Injured New York workers who suffered their injuries while carrying out their job duties may be able to receive lost wages benefits through the state workers' compensation program if their injuries prevent them from going to work. Lost wages will not compensate you for your full amount of income; however, they are also exempt from federal income tax. As such, you may end up receiving an amount of lost wages benefits that comes close to the amount you were earning.

Can you get compensation if your job causes a disease?

You know that you can get workers' compensation if you're injured on the job. Many times, it's easy to link an incident at work to a physical injury, like a fall resulting in a broken leg, for instance. What if you think your job caused a disease or an illness?
