Construction accident involving machinery rollover kills one

Unlike colder northern states, southern states tend to accommodate construction projects year-round due to their milder climates. States like Arizona can see construction workers’ accidents all twelve months of the year. A recent construction site accident in Texas involving a backhoe killed a man after the machine toppled over him, pinning him under the equipment. This marks the second time in a month that a person has suffered fatal injuries in connection with a machinery accident in that area. In the previous incident, a piece of equipment called a “trencher” toppled down a grade and landed on top of another man, killing him as well.

Arizona honors victims of workplace accidents

The Industrial Commission of Arizona, which oversees this state's workers' compensation system, recently encouraged all Arizonans to observe what is called Workers' Memorial Day. The day gives this state's residents the opportunity to reflect on the sacrifices that many of those who work in dangerous occupations have to make, particularly when they get hurt at work.
