California employers fined over hazards and workplace injuries

Several California employers have been fined by Cal-OSHA over various violations that led to worker injuries. These violations have been the direct cause of accidents that resulted in workplace injuries. Most of the fines were levied because Cal-OSHA considered these violations to be willful, blatantly ignoring known safety hazards.

What are your rights after suffering an on-the-job injury?

A workplace accident can bring upheaval to a California workers' life, as well as life for the family. Even a minor on-the-job injury can compromise a person's ability to work, making it hard to maintain a steady income stream. After an accident at work, a victim should take care to protect his or her rights by seeking a full recovery, both physically and financially.

Preventing workplace injuries among young workers

When young people enter the work force, they are usually less experienced than workers who are older. It is particularly important for employers to guard against workplace injuries among young workers. California readers will be interested to know that approximately 13 percent of the entire American workforce is made of young workers who are less than 24 years old. 

Preventing workplace injuries and illnesses related to heat

As the weather gets warmer and spring arrives in California, it is important for both workers and employers alike to take safety measures against heat-related injuries and illnesses. This is particularly important for those employed in agriculture, especially farmers. Heat-related workplace injuries can have serious consequences, but education and safety measures can benefit employees.

Suffered a head injury? We protect victims of workplace injuries.

Head injuries can have a myriad of physical, mental and emotional consequences for the victim. When workers suffer a head injury on the job, it can also have a financial impact as the person may be unable to continue with his or her job for a short amount of time, or even permanently. Although a head injury is one of the most common types of workplace injuries, a California victim deserves personalized assistance.

Steps to prevent on-the-job injury for emergency workers

California emergency workers of all kinds face risks every day. It is vital to protect the health and safety of these workers by establishing parameters that prevent unnecessary harm. In order to do this, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration has proposed a new regulation that could change work for those employed as fire fighters, with the intent of preventing on-the-job injury.
