Addressing work-related deaths when OSHA shows up on site

Many industries in California involve jobs that are inherently dangerous. Construction workers and farmers are among those who are likely familiar with job site accidents and work\-related deaths. Both types of work often include the use of heavy machinery, various terrains and situations that may be prone to mishaps.

California construction workers understand the dangerous natures of their jobs. From working alongside moving traffic to regularly using heavy machinery, the risks involved are many and accidents are not uncommon. However, in some areas accidents on the job appear to be more prevalent than others. In fact, so far in 2016, OSHA has investigated at least 30 work\-related deaths in one other state, alone.

Addressing issues that often arise after workplace accidents

For many in California, going to work and performing one's duties each and every day are merely part of a routine. However, employees are advised to avoid becoming complacent when it comes to keeping up-to-date on laws and regulations that govern workers' compensation situations. One never knows when workplace accidents may occur, likely leaving those who are uninformed feeling helpless and confused about where to go for assistance.

Depending on one's scope of employment, just going to work every day may pose a safety risk.
