California workers injured on the job by huge beams

Working on any kind of construction site can be inherently dangerous, despite safety protocol or equipment found at job sites. When it comes to overpasses and night work, there can be an increased risk of being injured on the job due to the nature of the job and the type of equipment around. A recent California job accident resulted in two workers being injured after large steel beams fell from an overpass.

Workplace accidents are always hoped to be avoided, but unfortunately, a sudden incident can take place at a moment's notice.
