What is a designated doctor appointment?

If you have been injured on the job in Texas, you may be instructed to go to a designated doctor appointment. Typically, this is something that is done when there is a dispute or when more information is needed, and it often relates to impairment cases. The doctor is picked out specifically to resolve things, so you do not have the freedom to go anywhere for this appointment. The TDI -- Texas Department of Insurance -- will pick the doctor out for you.

Heat exposure in the workplace

As many Texas workers may know, laboring in high heat and humidity might result in injury or death if proper precautions are not taken. While the Occupational Safety and Health Administration does not have a specific regulation safeguarding workers from heat exposure, a general duty provision does take note of the responsibility of employers to provide a safe workplace. Citations issued by OSHA may range from a notice to a $70,000 penalty for a willful citation charge.
