California nurses speak out about being injured while working

Few people would disagree that nurses have a difficult job. However, what people may not realize is the fact that the job can also be quite dangerous. Recent events have prompted California nurses to speak out about being injured while working and about the need for better safety standards and training.

On-the-job injury common in the construction industry

Each day a person goes to work and returns home may be viewed as any other ordinary day in California. Sadly, a work accident may turn the ordinary into a devastating tragedy. Some workers are killed on-the-job, while others may be out of commission for months due to an on-the-job injury. This is particularly common in the construction business, an industry where working at heights and using dangerous equipment is all in a day's work.

Subcontractor fined by OSHA after man injured on the job dies

A subcontractor at the San Francisco 49ers stadium has recently been handed down significant fines due to safety violations that reportedly contributed to a worker's untimely death. The worker died back in October when some of the building materials fell and resulting in him being injured on the job. Apparently, a load of rebar fell off one of the delivery trucks at the work site and crushed him in the process. He suffered serious injuries to his head and succumbed to those injuries following the California work accident.

Worker ejected and killed in work injury when crane flipped over

Not only does the family of a man who recently lost his life in a workplace accident at an industrial site in another state have to cope with their grief, they may also be facing financial hardship. California residents may be aware that when a breadwinner dies after suffering a work injury, the family may not be able to manage financially without an income from the deceased. In addition, they will be confronted by the high costs of a funeral and burial.

Workers' compensation allows claims for occupational disease

It is obligatory for most California employers to have workers' compensation insurance to pay compensation to workers who lose their income as a consequence of workplace injuries. Many workers may not be aware that workers' compensation does not only cover injuries sustained while at work, but also occupational diseases. Exposure to toxins and impurities may result in various illnesses and poison-related diseases.

Possible law may protect temp workers with workers' compensation

Temp workers in the state of California may be receiving good news about workers' compensation soon. Lawmakers are taking the law where no other state has before. California will be the first state to attempt to hold temp companies and subcontractors responsible for safety and wage violations. Up until now, temp workers have had no voice, and with no laws to back them up, it is no wonder. This may soon change and they may be able to receive workers' compensation along with other benefits.
