Careless workers may unintentionally cause construction accidents

Arizona construction sites can certainly be dangerous places, but this is why safety guidelines are put in place. It is the responsibility of a construction company to make sure that safety regulations are followed and workers are trained so that injurious construction accidents do not occur. Sadly, in a case from a different state, the accident turned out to be not just injurious but fatal.

OSHA declares workplace accident should not have happened

Training is a vital part of any Arizona industry. Instructing workers how to safely perform their duties is the responsibility of every employer. When that training is not provided, a workplace accident is practically inevitable.

Worker suffers burns most of his body in industrial accident

All machinery and equipment used by Arizona workers requires routine maintenance and cleaning. Certain procedures need to be followed in order to ensure the safety of the men and women required to take care of those tasks. When a company fails to follow guidelines and regulations established by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the result could be a severe or life-threatening industrial accident.

The many moving parts of machinery safety

Arizona's industrial workers are exposed to numerous hazards on their jobs every day. The machines they work with pose any number of threats to their lives and limbs. Employers are required to ensure that safety measures are in place to protect workers from the many mechanical and non-mechanical dangers of the equipment. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration outlines minimum machinery safety requirements pertaining to nearly every part of every machine.

OSHA gives victory to baggage handlers who are hurt at work

The men and women who handle baggage at the nation's airports, including those here in Arizona, go about their daily duties behind the scenes. Few people consider the fact that baggage handlers are hurt at work on a consistent basis. Lifting bags, boxes and other cargo, among other hazards they face, causes numerous injuries each year.
