Building collapses, resulting in serious workplace accidents

When buildings are constructed in California, there are numerous codes to ensure quality of work and safety for all involved. Unfortunately, despite safety precautions, workplace accidents still occur. Three construction workers in another state were all injured when the building they were constructing collapsed on them.

Death benefits for fatal industrial workers' accidents

The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health strives to enforce safety standards for all work environments, including industrial sites across the state. Unfortunately, despite safety standards, industrial workers' accidents still occur, and they can result in serious injury and death. Sadly, in another state, a construction worker was recently killed while working on the job.

Heat exposure can put you at risk at work

California is a hot state, and workplaces can be even hotter depending on the industry. It's important for all workplaces to account for the environment to keep their employees comfortable. Too much heat exposure can result in serious injuries and potentially death from heat-related illnesses.

Construction workers' accidents can change a person's life

The California division of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration works to limit and regulate injuries for employees across the state. Unfortunately, despite regulations, construction workers' accidents still occur on a regular basis, resulting in injuries to those involved. OSHA recently began an investigation at a construction site where a building unexpectedly collapsed. Fortunately, all workers involved survived the accident.
