How do I report a safety issue at work?

When you are working and notice that something is wrong and could pose a safety issue, it is part of your responsibility to make sure it is reported. Ideally, you can bring it up with your supervisor and get things handled. However, this is not always going to work. In that case, you have every right to make a report with the Occupational Health and Safety Administration.

Why slow drivers can be dangerous

When we think of dangerous driving, we usually imagine motorists who speed past the posted speed limit. While it is true fast driving is reckless driving, Kentucky motorists can also be dangerous if they drive too slowly. A slow motorist runs the risk of a collision if another driver approaching from behind cannot stop in time. Slow drivers also disrupt the flow of traffic as frustrated motorists try to pass by.

What are the requirements to adopt in Kentucky?

Adoption is a wonderful gift for everyone involved. You get a child who you can love and care for. The child gets a loving and attentive home. Regardless of whether you adopt a baby, a toddler or an older child, it is a situation that can be really great. However, the state of Kentucky takes huge responsibility for children before they are officially adopted. Due to this, the state has some strict guidelines for who can adopt. It is important for such regulations to ensure the children being adopted are going to good homes where they will get proper care and be loved.

What does the worker's compensation process involve?

If you are hurt on the job in Kentucky, you probably will file a worker's compensation claim. This can help you to get payment for any medical care you need and possibly help you recoup lost wages. Once you file a claim, it moves through the claims process, which according to the Labor Department allows the claim to be investigated so an approval or denial can be rendered.

What does it mean to assume the risk?

If you have been hurt on another person’s property and you feel that the property owner should have done more to make the property safer or to provide fair warning, the owner might counter that you “assumed the risk” by crossing onto the property or engaging in whatever activity that caused the injury. Kentucky injury victims should be careful not to be tricked into assuming guilt for an injury that is not their fault.
