Fatigue is an unfortunate reality for millions of Americans across the nation. While many people believe fatigue is something that just comes with the job, and is an inescapable part of keeping up with the work force, this simply isn’t the case. In fact, fatigue is entirely preventable in nature, and it starts with both employers and employees being aware of the risks that come with lack of sleep, energy, or rest.
As part of National Safety Month, the National Safety Council has prioritized fatigue as one of the leading causes of injury and accident in the workforce. In fact, of 4821 people who died doing their jobs in 2014, many were as a result of being overworked--which so often leads to an increase in error, reduced cognitive thinking, and a slower reaction time.
Out of pure necessity, many people work more than one job, often take very few breaks in between their various pursuits. This results in countless Americans facing fatigue as part of their daily life, especially if their employers do not grant them the ability to take breaks when necessary. If you have suffered as a result of your employer forcing you into positions of being overworked, our Richmond Social Security Disability lawyers want to pursue justice on your behalf--no employee deserves to be overworked to the point of exhaustion, possibly risking their lives while on the job.
