Atlanta, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/03/2017 -- Darwin Johnson, a leading Atlanta workers' compensation lawyer and head of The Law Offices of Darwin Johnson, released a write-up on his firm's website that offers helpful tips to stay as safe as possible while on a physically strenuous job.
"The beauty of the American workforce is how protected all who enter into it are, with many policies, rules and regulations in place to ensure safety," said Darwin Johnson. "However, sometimes insurance companies and employers try to avoid following those rules and neglect to properly compensate injured workers."
Johnson's article explains that while he is willing and able to fight alongside workplace accident victims whose employers and insurers are not compensating them properly, "the best thing you can do is take measures to avoid getting injured in the first place," said Johnson.
His tips to stay safe include using properly fitting clothing, operating appropriate equipment to complete tasks, taking breaks to avoid fatigue and lifting heavy objects the right way. He also advised employees to follow steps outside of their worksites that could help them avoid injuries, like following stress relieving activities, staying active and eating healthily.
"Stress is a big contributor to workplace injuries," said Johnson. "If you're too stressed out to focus on the task at hand, your potential for becoming injured will skyrocket."
