Workplace injuries and death from construction falls remain high

Californians who work in construction understand the risks they face as a natural byproduct of the work. They are required to work at significant heights, use heavy tools with sharp edges, trust other workers using vehicles and equipment and place themselves in harm's way every day. However, employers are obligated to have as safe a working environment as possible and, as new information shows, one of the biggest dangers - falls - has yet to be taken as seriously as it should.

A job in law enforcement can challenge your health

If you are a police officer in California, you will have to take special care of your health because your job poses many hazards. Along with the expected physical risks as you go about your days, the demanding nature of your high-risk occupation can be harmful to your physical and mental health. If you do not take care, you could develop any of the many ailments, illnesses and diseases known to affect those working in criminal justice or criminology.

Construction work is one of the most dangerous types of jobs a Californian can do. While it is a respectable job with good wages and benefits, there are inherent risks facing a construction worker each day they head to the job. Some of these accidents result in serious injuries that spark major medical expenses, lost time on the job and innumerable challenges. In the worst-case, people can lose their lives. Those who have been affected by a construction accident must think about the future and whether a legal filing is necessary to receive compensation.

What can you expect from your boss after an on-the-job injury?

The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health requires all employers to provide safe work environments that are free of known hazards. You must be equipped with the necessary personal protective equipment and receive adequate safety training -- including the safe operation of PPE. Compliance with the safety standards as prescribed by Cal/OSHA and federal safety agencies is crucial.
