California worker suffered an injury on the job after falling

Outdoor construction work in any capacity can carry a lot of risks and workers can easily become injured without warning. Recently, a California worker suffered an injury on the job when he took a steep fall into a hole. The worker needed medical attention after the incident.

After six injured on the job, California facility resumes work

Any time that there is a workplace accident that leaves multiple people injured, an investigation often occurs. Those investigations can take awhile and cause interruptions to facility operations. In the case of one California facility, a workplace fire led to six people being injured on the job and also led to the facility only running at 60 percent while OSHA reviewed the situation.

California worker suffers fatal work injury

Any kind of work involving heavy machinery or maintenance on large trucks or buses carries some risk of injury, even during a typical work day. Unfortunately, a California worker suffered a fatal work injury while simply doing his job as a maintenance worker. The man was an employee at the Valley Transportation Authority.

California business must carry workers' compensation

The law is very clear on who has to provide workers' compensation coverage and other regulations when it comes to how businesses treat their employees. However, one California business that is purportedly owned by a religious organization apparently felt it did not need to provide some benefits such as workers' compensation to workers in a deli. A ruling handed down by the California Department of Industrial Relations may mean other religious organizations that own businesses and have employees may also have to comply.
