On-the-job injury and the dangers of combustible dust

When dangerous conditions in the workplace go unnoticed, it can result in serious accidents, leading to injury or death. One commonly unnoticed danger in certain workplaces is the presence of combustible dust. Combustible dust can lead to on-the-job injury for many California workers, including those who are employed on oil rigs and in manufacturing plants, factories and more. 

We can help when construction workers are injured on the job

California readers know that construction sites are fraught with certain risks. While hazards are an inherent part of the construction industry, safety should be a primary concern for construction companies and site managers. When accidents do occur and construction workers are injured on the job, those injured workers will find it useful to have the help of a lawyer knowledgeable in workers' rights and workers' compensation law.

Workers' compensation after a work-related death

A California family is grieving the loss of a loved one after a work-related accident caused a fatal injury. The man had served in his position with Berkeley's Zero Waste division for 25 years. Any fatal work accident is tragic, and loved ones left behind could be eligible for workers' compensation benefits, which could include funeral expenses, medical costs and recompense for lost income.

Fatal on-the-job injury for California tree trimmer

In a recent tragic work accident, a California tree trimmer fell from a tree to his death. The fatal on-the-job injury occurred as he fell while he was working to cut away trees from power lines. In addition to his employer, Wright Tree Service, the coroner's office and Pacific Gas and Electric Company are also investigating this unfortunate incident.

What type of workplace injuries are covered by workers' comp?

A work accident can have a impact on an individual long into the future. From medical bills to an inability to return to the same job, workplace injuries can change the course of a California worker's life. These injuries should be taken seriously, and any victim should take necessary steps to ensure that he or she understands the workers' compensation process and other legal issues.

When workplace injuries are fatal, families have rights

A work accident can have consequences that affect a worker and his or her family for months or years to come. Recovery can be complicated and workplace injuries may mean that a person cannot return to the same job as before the accident. However difficult some work accidents can be, it is just as difficult, if not more, for families of workers who sustained fatal injuries.

Preventing on-the-job injury in confined spaces

California construction workers sometimes have to be in treacherous positions, including confined spaces -- such as holes, trenches and tunnels. When it is required that workers be in these types of hazardous environments, employers and site managers should take every possible step to avoid an on-the-job injury. Requirements from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration dictate that employers carefully evaluate the space before workers enter.

Measures may reduce on-the-job injury for health care workers

Health care workers face a number of risks every day. From violent patients to exposure to dangerous diseases, these workers deserve to have a work environment that is as safe as possible. Some workers are pushing for new measures that would reduce their risks of on-the-job injury. California nurses are rallying for approval of these new measures, which would implement a bill that was passed last year.
