Defense Base Act (DBA) Benefits for Janitorial Workers & Cleaning Personnel
Janitorial workers and cleaning personnel play a vital role in maintaining clean and safe environments on military bases overseas. However, their work in such challenging settings also exposes them to many workplace dangers and risks. In the event of work-related injuries or illnesses, these dedicated individuals are entitled to specific benefits under the Defense Base Act (DBA) – a federal law that covers civilian employees working on U.S. military bases abroad.
In this article, the specialized DBA attorneys at Cantrell Green explore the workplace dangers faced by janitors and cleaning staff on military bases overseas, highlight the most common injuries they encounter, and discuss the comprehensive benefits available to them under the Defense Base Act. Additionally, we will discuss the importance of hiring an experienced DBA law firm like Cantrell Green to ensure they receive the full compensation they deserve.
DBA: Janitor & Cleaning Staff Workplace Dangers
Janitors and cleaning personnel on military bases overseas confront unique challenges and risks in their day-to-day duties. These dangers include exposure to hazardous materials, working in remote and sometimes hostile environments, and navigating high-security zones. According to statistics from the U.S. Department of Labor, civilian workers on military bases abroad, including janitors and cleaners, have a heightened risk of sustaining work-related injuries compared to many other occupations.
Working on military bases abroad presents janitors and cleaning personnel with a range of potential injuries. Slip and fall accidents on uneven terrain or wet surfaces, or while climbing or reaching, are common occurrences.
Lifting heavy objects, pulling or pushing equipment, and/or repetitive tasks can lead to musculoskeletal injuries, including back, shoulder, and joint injuries, as well as carpal tunnel syndrome.
Exposure to harsh cleaning chemicals and hazardous substances can cause lung and breathing (respiratory) illnesses, as well as skin irritations and burn – in addition to allergic reactions.
Janitorial and cleaning staff may also suffer injuries related to the operation and maintenance of heavy cleaning equipment and machinery.
Benefits under the Defense Base Act (DBA) for Janitors & Cleaners
The Defense Base Act provides essential benefits to civilian workers, including janitors and cleaning staff, injured while working on U.S. military bases overseas. These benefits include:
Medical Coverage: The DBA covers all necessary medical treatment and care related to the work-related injury or illness. This includes doctor visits, hospitalization, medications, physical therapy, and any other medical interventions required for recovery.
Disability Compensation: In the event of temporary or permanent disability resulting from a workplace injury, the DBA provides disability benefits to compensate for lost wages and any resulting impairment. These benefits aim to provide financial support while workers recover or adjust to permanent disabilities.
Vocational Rehabilitation: If a janitor or cleaning staff member sustains a permanent disability that hinders their ability to return to their previous job, the DBA offers vocational rehabilitation services. This assistance aims to help injured workers re-enter the workforce by acquiring new skills or transitioning to alternative employment opportunities.
Death Benefits: In tragic cases where a janitor or cleaning staff member loses their life due to a work-related incident on a military base overseas, the DBA provides death benefits to their surviving dependents. These benefits offer financial support to the family in their time of need.
