Hazmat called in after 20 workers suffered workplace injuries

Company owners in California must ensure that all workers are aware of the dangers posed by chemical substances, even if chemicals are only used for cleaning purposes. The fire department of Tracy was recently called to an early morning emergency at Taylor Farms involving a chemical spill. Upon arrival, it was determined that the cleaning crew had mixed some chemicals that caused workplace injuries to 20 employees.

Workers' compensation and third-party claims may both be viable

Thousands of workers put their lives on the line while they are working in construction zones on the busy California highways. Even though there are safety regulations that govern employers to ensure that workers are not threatened by known hazards, accidents continue to occur in construction zones. While injured workers are covered by the workers' compensation insurance program, many construction zone accidents involve individuals who are not associated with the employer of the injured person, and this may lead to third-party cases.

Workplace accidents: Victim of trench collapse dies after 2 days

Many workplace fatalities that occur nationwide, including in California, involve unsecured trenches. Working in trenches is known to present multiple life-threatening hazards, and employers must comply with a number of safety regulations that have been established by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Failure to observe these rules can lead to fatal workplace accidents.

California freeways are constantly damaged by the climate and the ever-increasing numbers of vehicles. For that reason, motorists have become accustomed to traffic cones and other signs of roadway construction zones. Workers in these construction zones are extremely vulnerable, and many construction workers' accidents have resulted in severe injuries and even deaths when passing drivers failed to take due care.
