Workplace injuries: Man claims unfair treatment after injury

Suffering from an injury obtained on a job site is often difficult. In addition to the pain and injuries that require medical treatment, injured workers may worry about the cost of medical treatment in addition to missed time at work. Most California employers provide workers' compensation insurance benefits for workplace injuries to help workers heal and return to work. One worker in another state has claimed his injury has resulted in unfair treatment following his return from his healed injury.

Tesla accused of underreporting multiple workplace injuries

Federal and California mandates require companies to report injuries sustained at work. Injuries that are required to be reported are typically ones that require a worker to miss work for any amount of time, but ones that require simple first aid are not mandated to be reported. Recently, Tesla has been reported and investigated for underreporting multiple workplace injuries of its employees.

Man suffers workplace injuries at YEEZY

Kayne West has ventured into more than rapping and music in the last few years. One of Kayne's ventures has involved a collaboration with Adidas for an apparel line called YEEZY. Reportedly, the brand is set to expand with more offices around the country, but the company's plans may be stalled. Recently, the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health launched an investigation into some workplace injuries that an employee suffered while at YEEZY.

Cal-OHSA investigates Tesla for workplace injuries

It is not surprising that a vehicle requires a large production facility and assembly line considering the size of most vehicles that travel the roadways. With large equipment and extensive production, precautions must be taken at all times to ensure safety of all in a plant. Recently, the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health opened up two investigations at Tesla involving workplace injuries.

There are 8 common workplace injuries

In order to help employers in California and others across the United States understand common on-the-job injuries, the Bureau of Labor Statistics examined data across the country of injuries suffered by full-time workers. Although most workplace injuries that make the news are often ones that result in serious injuries or tragic deaths of workers, most injuries are less severe but still can have an impact on work load and usually require the use of workers' compensation insurance benefits. The data revealed that most injuries occur in the course of everyday events such as overexertion, falls, slips and trips.

Workplace injuries: Man dies from stunt on TV show

It takes an army of actors, producers, writers and crew members to make a successful movie or television show. Stuntmen or stuntwomen are often part of the crew, depending on the needs of the production. Although stunts involve taking risks, when executed in a safe manner, injuries can be minimal. As with any other industry, workplace injuries can occur, especially if safety measures are neglected. People in California may be interested to learn that one woman in another state is claiming that a production company could be legally responsible for her son's death.

Fatal workplace injuries leaves California family grieving

Flaggers and traffic directors are employed to ensure the safety of drivers in a congested or construction area. Unfortunately, one California flagger recently lost his life while trying to direct traffic and keep truckers safe in his place of employment. Fortunately, workers' compensation insurance is available for victims of workplace injuries -- and for the families of fatal victims -- to help alleviate some of the financial stress created.

Protecting workers' rights in the health care industry

Health care workers are less likely to be injured in the workplace thanks to some new measures passed by a state safety board. The California Division of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration recently approved measures that would require more training and enforce violence prevention protocols. These new rules are intended to protect workers' rights and make it less likely that people who work in this industry will be hit, kicked, bitten or grabbed.

Dangerous workplace conditions violate workers' rights

California workers have the right to a safe work environment, one that is free from unnecessary dangers or hazards. According to recently released reports, Blue Apron violated workers' rights due to unsafe, violent and stressful workplace conditions at a fulfillment center in Richmond, California. These workers were exposed to violence, bomb threats, inappropriate touching and much more.

California workers' rights and stress-related illnesses

A recent study examines the role of stress in workplace illnesses, and the findings are surprising. While some stress can actually be helpful to employees, some people in California may be getting sick from working in stressful environments. Bosses and managers may be infringing on workers' rights by creating high-stress environments and failing to acknowledge the damage that occurs.
