Workplace injury is common among Oklahoma trash collectors

A new law in Oklahoma for the protection of trash collectors takes effect November 1.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration recently reported that in 2014 about 18 people across the country died on the job from heat-related illnesses, including heat stroke. Additionally, over 2,600 workers became ill on the job from exposure to heat. An OSHA spokesperson commented that illnesses caused by heat, like many workplace injuries or illnesses, are almost always preventable. In Oklahoma, workers who take certain precautions are less likely to succumb to the heat this summer.
