Workplace accidents: Tree trimmer falls 30 feet to his death

Investigators of the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health are looking into the death of a tree trimmer in Palo Alto. Although the agency investigates all fatal workplace accidents, those in which the deceased employees worked alone are more challenging because no other workers were around to witness the incidents. Investigators will have to piece together the evidence found on the scene and statements from residents who might have witnessed the fall.

Forklift accident causes traumatic workplace injuries

Forklifts are common pieces of equipment in warehouses and distribution centers in California. Unfortunately, the hazards they pose are not always recognized.

Workers' compensation: Heat hazards early this summer

Every year, the consequences of excessive heat exposure see many employees having to file workers' compensation claims for medical expenses and lost wages due to heat illness.

Workplace accidents: Tiller crushes vineyard worker to death

Overconfidence and shortcuts can cause workplace accidents

The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health prescribes safety regulations to deal with just about any work-related hazard an employee in any industry might encounter. However, many dangers are brought about by human nature rather than safety violations. Employees may not even realize how they could be their own worst enemies and put their own lives in danger. Workplace accidents can happen despite compliance with specific safety regulations.
