Low penalties could lead to more work accidents

Penalties and fines are important tools for Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Arizona's Division of Occupational Safety and Health leverages fines against employers who have violated safety protocols, although those fines were recently lowered. Employees and federal officials alike are concerned about the impact of smaller fines, which could possibly lead to an increase in work accidents.

Arizona workers' compensation means concentrating on recovery

If Arizona workers were constantly worrying over whether they are safe on the job, they'll likely be unable to concentrate on doing their work effectively and efficiently. This is one of the many reasons why workers' compensation benefits are so important. Employees need to feel secure that their health and livelihood isn't a constant concern when they're doing dangerous jobs, such as road construction.

Electrician accidents may be avoided through empowering workers

Of course, no Arizona employers want their workers to have accidents. Employers, just like employees, both want and expect the workplace to be a safe and productive environment. This need for safety is especially important in the field of electrical system work, though, as electrical-related and electrician accidents are the sixth leading cause of injury-related deaths in the workplace.
