Work-related deaths often shrouded in mystery

Every year, families in California and many other states receive unexpected phone calls informing them that loved ones have been seriously injured or killed on the job. Such tragedies occur more often in some fields of employment than others. Work-related deaths are more likely to happen on construction sites or in factories where high-powered machinery is often used rather than business offices or clothing stores, for instance.

California farmers and others at risk for work-related deaths

Whenever studies are done to determine what types of work are the most dangerous in California and throughout the nation, farming always ranks high on the list. In addition to work\-related deaths in the construction and manufacturing industries, farmers often face tremendous risks when operating heavy machinery and carrying out various tasks in the fields. A recent tragedy occurred in another state that took the life of a farmer who had not yet reached age 30.

Some jobs more prone to workplace accidents than others

If you're currently employed in the construction, farming or public service industries in California, you join thousands of other workers in the nation whose jobs are inherently dangerous. Due to heavy machinery, power tools, traffic and other related issues, these, and several other work arenas, are considered high risks for workplace accidents. Employers are obligated to provide appropriate training and make every effort to keep workers safe on the job.

Construction workers' comp could help you build new start

As a construction worker, you may enjoy your profession immensely. Many individuals take pride in having the ability to work with their hands and see the efforts of their labor grow into structures with various uses. Of course, you likely also understand that certain risks exist in the construction industry, and suffering an injury due to an accident could affect you or your co-workers at any time.
