OSHA believes updated rule will reduce work injuries

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration periodically updates or otherwise changes its rules in an attempt to keep workers in a variety of industries safe. The agency recently updated its walking-working surfaces standards, which will more than likely impact no less than 112 million workers across the country, including many here in Arizona. OSHA believes the implementation of the updates will reduce work injuries and fatalities.

OSHA blames fatal work injuries on construction company

As is the case across the country, whenever there is a death at a job site here in Arizona, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration conducts an investigation. Their findings often reveal the party or parties who could be held liable for the fatal work injuries that brought about the investigation. This information might be used by surviving family members if they pursue a wrongful death claim.

Most Arizona residents who work in the state's manufacturing facilities understand the risks that go with their jobs. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, approximately 57 percent of the traumatic amputations that occurred in 2015 happened in manufacturing facilities. OSHA is now launching an initiative to enforce rules and regulations that should help prevent these injuries with a primary focus on four states in particular.

Industrial accident injuries can keep you from being able to work

If you are unable to work, you are more than likely not making any money. Industrial accident injuries could prevent you from working for a significant amount of time. Fortunately, you can turn to the Arizona workers' compensation system for benefits that are designed to cover at least a portion of your financial losses until you are able to return to work, if at all.
