In any industry, there is a certain level of risk that California workers face when they clock in each day. Unfortunately, that risk can sometimes result in fatal workplace injuries. This was the case in a recent industrial accident that claimed the lives of two workers in another state.
Every California employee is at risk of injury while at work, regardless of their exact occupation. In some cases, one may sustain workplace injuries that result in death. When this happens, workers' compensation is still a possibility, as the surviving spouse or dependents are able to receive death benefits. This is something the family of two workers at a recent California workplace accident may be interested in knowing.
In the aftermath of the Chevron refinery fire in Aug. 2012, the U.S. Chemical Safety Board (CSB) conducted an investigation into the incident. As part of that investigation, the CSB is making recommendations to change California's regulatory system as it pertains to refineries. The proposed approach is aimed at reducing workplace injuries as well as injuries to the public.
Every day, industrial workers across the country walk out their front door and enter the industrial site where they work. This routine daily occurrence is often thought of as just another day at work. However, industrial accidents are always a possibility. California industrial workers may want to take note of a recent work injury that resulted in the worker's death.
Earlier this year, a tragic industrial accident took the life of a temporary worker in Bay Point, California. The 26-year-old was working in an adhesive plant when he got caught up in a rotating mixer and suffered serious injuries and later died.
