The construction business can be very dangerous even with a plethora of rules and regulations in place. While California construction sites are generally made as safe as possible, a work injury can still take place. This is demonstrated by a recent work injury that took the life of a man who was working on a stairwell.
Any kind of work for a town, district or city can entail a number of responsibilities and job duties. It isn't uncommon for California city crew workers to be around heavy machinery or vehicles, which can all be potentially dangerous to work around. Recently in San Francisco, a city worker was fatally injured on the job as he was struck by a garbage truck.
Some lines of work are more dangerous than others. Even when a construction worker is highly trained and experienced, a fatal work injury can still occur under certain circumstances. Recently in California, a construction worker suffered a fatal work injury while doing a seemingly simple job.
Any time that a fatal work accident occurs, there is typically an investigation into what went wrong. These investigations have the purpose of both pinpointing any culpability and also helping companies strive to prevent any such accidents from happening again. After one recent investigation in California, the company is facing citations related to an incident where one worker was fatally injured on the job.
Any time that someone is working outdoors, especially in the construction industry, there may be room for an accident to occur. Trees in particular are an especially dangerous obstacle for many California construction workers. In fact, a construction worker in California recently suffered a work injury related to a falling tree.
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.
When people think about work accidents related to farming, grain silos or facilities that handle grain, they may not immediately conjure up images of an explosion. However, explosions at grain facilities, even in California, are more common than many may think because of the explosive nature of grain dust. This seems to be what happened when a work injury turned deadly for a worker inside of a grain elevator recently.
