3 Workers suffered temporary disability after bridge collapse

Upon completion of the investigation into the January collapse of the falsework on a bridge bypass on Highway 101 in Mendocino County, the California Division of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration issued citations to all three companies that were involved in the construction. Investigators found that the falsework collapsed due to a design error. Multiple workers were on top of the structure, 25 feet up, and one was below when the accident happened. Three workers suffered temporary disability as the result of the injuries they suffered.

Construction workers' accidents: Fatality leads Cal/OSHA fines

The California Safety and Health Administration require owners of construction companies to identify potential safety hazards prior to commencing work on any project. Each identified safety risk must be addressed, and proper precautions must be taken to avoid construction workers' accidents. A Novato family could have been spared the trauma of losing a loved one had his employer complied with safety regulations.

Workplace accidents: OSHA investigates unexplained railcar death

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has strict regulations applicable to various industries nationwide, including California. When workplace accidents occur, OSHA must be advised within a given period, and the agency typically investigates to determine whether safety violations caused -- or contributed -- to the injuries or deaths of workers. Such questions are now being asked by a justice of the peace and the family members of a worker who recently lost his life in a workplace accident in another state. OSHA is investigating.

Third-party cases: Construction zone accident injures worker

Despite warnings to slow down in construction zones, many California drivers fail to take extra care. Unfortunately, such behavior threatens the lives of workers. Accidents in which construction workers are injured by vehicles traveling through often result in third-party cases.
