56-year-old California construction worker dies in accident

No two jobs in California are the same. Each comes with unique responsibilities, but more importantly, each comes with its own share of risks. Even an office job can be dangerous in some respects, but few jobs compare to the perils associated with working at a construction site. There are too many variables, too many climbs up onto ladders and scaffolding and too many power tools and pieces of heavy machinery for a hard hat-wearing worker to ever be completely safe from the threat of a fatal accident.

7 deadly causes of forklift accidents

Forklifts are extremely dangerous and risky to have in any workplace. This is because they are being used in and around other workers who are walking on foot. Forklifts are heavy, they move quickly and they can crush unsuspecting pedestrians, killing them or causing catastrophic injuries in a heartbeat.

Scaffold accident prevention

Any California construction worker who regularly uses a scaffold to perform his job duties is risking life and limb every time he or she climbs up on top of a scaffold. Indeed, human beings were not meant to fall from heights of multiple stories, and if the worker loses his or her balance, it can result in catastrophic injuries.
