Ohio transportation worker killed in fatal crash

Any worker who needs to drive as part of his or her job duties is at a substantially higher risk of being injured on the job. Ohio readers may recall a number of fatal accidents reported in this blog involving individuals that work on the highways and roads of the state and around the country. Unfortunately, another fatal workplace accident has recently claimed the life of an Ohio transportion worker.

Ohio man dies in workplace accident at natural gas operation

Ohio residents know that the natural gas industry has been booming in the state for some time. Although there are definite economic benefits to be gained from the extraction of natural gas, the safety of the industry as a whole to the environment has come under close scrutiny. However, in addition to the potential environmental risks associated with extracting natural gas, many may have overlooked the potential risks for the workers that are involved in the process of extracting this valuable resource.

Sugarcreek manufacturer cited for serious safety violations

Manufacturers in Ohio know that if they do not promote a safe working environment they may be cited by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, also known as OSHA. OSHA actively investigates all employers, and it pays particular attention to industries where the risk of injury is high. Manufacturers who frequently employ individuals that are working with heavy industrial equipment need make sure they are ensuring the safety of their workers.

OSHA cites Ohio company to prevent workplace injuries

It is the responsibility of every business to ensure that its working conditions are as safe as possible. Unfortunately, some Ohio companies choose to make earning profits take precedence over safety. When this occurs, easily preventable workplace accidents are much more likely to happen. In the end, the failure to maintain vigilance regarding the working conditions and the safety of workers can backfire, especially when OSHA discovers the presence of serious safety violations.

Firefighter injured in car crash while attending to victim

It is virtually impossible for Ohio residents to open the paper these days without coming upon an article about workplace injuries. From construction sites to industrial sites, safety has certainly improved over the years, but many employees continue to work in dangerous workplace environments. This is particularly true for first responders, who work an inherently dangerous job. However, all injured workers, regardless of the inherent dangerousness of their job, are entitled to compensation for workplace accidents.
