Workplace accidents: Vehicle safety is a top priority

Any number of issues may arise on the job that create hazardous conditions for California workers. Workplace accidents are less likely to occur if employers and workers follow safety regulations, especially those regarding operation of commercial vehicles. If an employer or worker is negligent in his or her duties, accidents may occur that result in serious, even fatal injuries. 

Workplace accidents: Rehabilitation is always a goal

When a California worker suffers an on-the-job injury, there is no way to predict how much time will be needed for a full recovery. Workplace accidents can cause partial or full permanent disability, which means that, in some cases, an injured employee may never be able to go back to work. Thankfully, that is not the way it happened for a young police officer in another state. 

Workplace accidents: Tragedy in another state involving fatality

When a California worker carries out his or her duties, he or she can reasonably expect that the employer in question has provided all necessary information, training and equipment to help lower the risk of injury on the job. When workplace accidents occur, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration(OSHA) often opens an investigation. This is especially true if a particular accident results in a fatality.
