2 workers injured while working, 1 worker dies

At a construction site, crews need to ensure that the structures they build are stable and will not collapse unexpectedly. This will help to avoid the possibility of construction workers being seriously injured while working. It can even avoid a possible death resulting from an accident in California or elsewhere. Unfortunately, this may not have been done at one site where a recent construction accident occurred.

On-the-job injury causes tragic death of trailer builder

While the owners of companies in California have a duty to provide safe working environments for their workers, some incidents cannot be anticipated, even if proper safety management is practiced. However, those employers who disregard the well-being of their employees by ignoring prescribed safety regulations may suffer the consequences as set out by law. Since many workplace injuries are fatal, every on-the-job injury that is prevented may potentially save a life.

Worker injured on the job, California company cited

When workplace duties pose hazards to workers, it is important that those hazards are addressed and that precautions are taken to lessen the likelihood of injuries. If an accident does occur, a worker could become injured on the job, and as a result, that individual may need medical treatment and time away from work. If it is found that the company did not have the proper safety measures in place, fines and citations for the accident and injuries could be filed.

Importance of avoiding workplace injuries stressed during heat

The temperatures during the California harvest time can be hot enough to pose a threat to the health of workers in outdoor occupations. For that reason, the California branch of OSHA is working to get the word out to employers and employees alike in order to prevent workplace injuries related to heat exposure. While many changes have been introduced in the past, the need to constantly reassess workplace safety cannot be overemphasized.

Officer's injury found eligible for workers' compensation

If a worker injures himself or herself while physically on duty at the office or work site, it is usually obvious that the worker is eligible for compensation through workers’ compensation insurance. However, there are other instances when it is not as clear whether an injury is eligible for workers’ compensation coverage, especially when the injury occurs outside of the physical workplace. This is what happened with one police officer recently in California.
