Citations follow workplace accidents that caused death and injury

Regardless of the industries where California workers are employed, workplace accidents can cause severe and often life-altering injuries. In addition to the time that injured workers have to spend away from work, there may be ongoing medical costs. The financial implications can be devastating. Many workplace accidents could be avoided when employers fully comply with the safety regulations that the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health prescribes.

Paint company settles $950,000 lawsuit after industrial accident

California owners of industrial companies where dangerous chemicals are used have a huge responsibility in protecting employees against the potential hazards of exposure. The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health prescribes strict safety regulations for such industries. Companies are required to inform regulatory agencies of the use of particular chemicals. In a recent lawsuit, a paint company in Fullerton consented to paying $950,000 following the 2011 death of a worker in an industrial accident.

Accidental electrocution may have caused fatal work accident

When a work crew has to work on a site where high-voltage overhead cables are present in the vicinity, the danger should be evident. The company owner will be expected to do a thorough evaluation of the potential hazards and strategize on how to go about preventing workplace accidents. All workers should receive regular safety training, but the unique dangers of each site should be addressed. One way for California company owners to avoid a work accident or injury is to comply with all safety regulations as prescribed by the California Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

Mother struggles to cope after son died in accident on the job

California residents may empathize with parents in another state who lost their son in July of 2014 and are still struggling to adjust to life without him. The mother wants to create awareness of the fact that workers are allowed to refuse to do a job they believe to be unsafe. She believes that her message will remind employers of their responsibility to comply with safety regulations and, hopefully, prevent future fatal injuries in an accident on the job.
