Construction workers' accidents in California are part of the job

An accident on the job can be devastating, and this may be particularly true at a construction site. Workers at construction sites in California often deal with heavy equipment and materials that may cause grave injuries if mishandled. Construction workers' accidents may require hospitalization and time off work, creating even more of a hardship for the worker and his or her family.

Helpful ways to avoid workplace injuries

When a job demands high quotas at a fast pace, it may be tempting to cut corners at the expense of safety. However, new regulations from the Occupational Health and Safety Administration require businesses that employ more than 250 workers to report statistics for all workplace injuries, accidents or illnesses. This data will then be posted on OSHA's website for the public to view. The hope is that businesses in California and across the country will tighten their safety measures rather than face the possibility of public shame.

Workplace accidents impact county employees in California

In California, most public works departments are proud of their safety records-- even those whose jobs are inherently dangerous. That is why the recent tragic death of a county employee sent shock waves through the department and stirred investigations in three separate agencies to know the cause. In addition to the questions workplace accidents may raise for fellow employees, the families of the victims of these accidents may be left with questions of their own.

Summer brings heat-related workers' compensation claims

When summer rolls around, many workers in California expect the air conditioning will kick on and the office will stay cool. They may even complain that it is too chilly. Workers whose jobs require them to be outside or otherwise exposed to high temperatures may not be so lucky. Some may become so ill from the heat that they may need to claim workers' compensation. In 2014, over 2,600 workers became ill from heat exposure, and 18 of those workers died.
