Workplace accident in fall on road project kills Caltrans worker

California infrastructure projects are necessary to keep the state and its cities running effectively and safely. Many of these jobs put workers at risk. They are stationed high above the ground, work with large and heavy equipment, place their trust in others to maintain safety and face other potentially risky factors that can lead to a workplace accident with injuries and death. With a fatal work-related accident, as they confront the tragic event, the family left behind must remember other problems they will face in the aftermath. A legal filing is frequently necessary to recover sufficient compensation.

Are other benefits available along with workers' compensation?

When California workers are injured on the job, they will likely know that they can get workers' compensation benefits if they meet the requirements and are approved. Workers' compensation can provide for wage loss and medical expenses while the person gets treatment, tries to recover and seeks to get back on the job. If there are problems with the workers' compensation application or there is a need for other benefits, it is important to know what is available. Fortunately, for workers who meet the criteria, it is possible to get other forms of financial assistance.

Is your job robbing you of your hearing?

Excessive noise in any workplace is harmful. Most industrial machines and equipment produce high levels of noise. Regardless of the industry in which you earn your living, noise might threaten your hearing. Noise pollution occurs on construction sites, manufacturing plants, mining sites and many other work environments. According to the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health, any sound that exceeds 85 decibels is harmful.

Since California is a state where the roads are a primary way for people to get back and forth, they will require a significant amount of repair and maintenance. Infrastructure is critical for a municipality to function efficiently, and workers are needed to do the jobs to keep the roads safe and passable. While drivers might lament roadwork and the time it takes to get past it, most will understand the need to operate their vehicles slowly and safely when passing a road crew.

Construction projects are seemingly a constant sight in San Jose and throughout California. While these endeavors are a boost to businesses and individuals, there is an underlying danger with them that cannot be ignored. Workers are constantly at risk for being injured on the job. The heavy equipment, working at great heights and other factors can lead to accidents with injuries and death. Fortunately, there are workers' compensation benefits available to injured workers and other compensation alternatives for families left behind after a fatality. Knowing the necessary steps to maximizing those benefits is key.

Make sure you are not left hanging after a fall

If you are a construction worker in California who frequently risks your life by working at dangerous heights, you might fear the day that you suffer a fall. You might find comfort in the knowledge that your personal protective fall harness and lanyards will arrest your fall before you strike any hard surface below your work area.
