Construction workers' accidents: 1 dead, 1 injured in 2 incidents

Construction workers in California and nationwide have to face multiple safety risks on a daily basis. This is particularly the case in construction areas in which large mechanical equipment, such as earth-movers, are used. Two construction workers' accidents recently occurred on two consecutive days in another state.

Workplace injuries: OSHA highlights scissor lift hazards

In its ongoing quest for workers' safety in California and across the country, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration recently updated and released an alert about the dangers posed by scissor lifts. This followed a 12-month investigation into workplace accidents that were linked to aerial work platforms. These accidents caused the deaths of 10 workers and workplace injuries to more than 20 workers across the country.

Construction workers' accidents: Body of man found next to crane

Construction work is dangerous. For employees who work on their own, it can be even more hazardous. If construction workers' accidents occur, there must always be other workers nearby who can help or call for help. A lone worker can suffer a medical emergency, and with no one around, it could lead to his or her death. The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health Administration has many questions about the death of a worker who appeared to have been alone when he died.

Nearly-fatal workplace injuries at a meat processing plant in San Luis Obispo gave rise to a Cal/OSHA investigation that led to a combined fine of $74,500 for the company and an agency that places temporary workers.
