Fatal work injury takes life of California worker

Any kind of job can have its specific dangers or risks, especially if the worker is alone. Many people may assume working in a grocery store is a relatively safe occupational path; however there can still be risks involved. A California man recently suffered a fatal work injury in a grocery store due to an accident with a cardboard baler.

California farm closed as result of work injury that led to death

During this time of year, the heat can be as dangerous as any machine or tool used in any workplace.

For one California farm, an order to stop operations has resulted from the death of a worker that may be due to the heat and lack of proper procedure.

When people think of tree trimming work, they may think the heights workers need to endure may pose the greatest risk for workers health and well-being.

This seems to be what happened when a work injury turned deadly for a worker inside of a grain elevator recently.
