Man's arm severed in industrial accident

When most people think of dangerous jobs, they likely think of police officers and firefighters who actively go toward hazardous situations. While these type of workers do face dangers while completing their work responsibilities, the potential injuries that those working with heavy machinery in California may face are sometimes easily overlooked. In fact, a man in another state recently suffered a serious injury in an industrial accident.

Police were called to National Coating Corp., a company that provides saturation services and related products, during the early morning hours of a day in March. Reports at the time indicated that a man had suffered a severe injury. When police arrived, they reportedly encountered a 66-year-old man sitting in a pool of blood. Part of his left arm was severed.

Signs of hypertension: Are they related to your job?

When you think of on-the-job injuries, you might logically consider issues such as construction accidents, motor vehicle collisions or slips and falls in the workplace. While it's true that tens of thousands of workplace injuries in California and beyond involve such incidents, it's also true that there are many other types of injuries associated with the workplace that are not necessarily related to sudden accidents or isolated situations.

Is your job stressful? Whether you work in a high-risk industry for psychological stress, such as rescue work or on an emergency response team, or you work in an office for a boss who is overly demanding and quite intimidating at times, any number of work-related issues can lead to adverse health conditions, such as hypertension. If you suffer this condition as a job-related injury, you may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits.

HVAC worker critically injured in workplace accident

Most employers in California and across the country go to great lengths to protect workers on their premises. However, even experienced workers can ultimately become involved in a workplace accident despite following all safety measures. Unfortunately, a man in another state is now in the intensive care unit after he was reportedly injured while working on a boiler.

Emergency responders were reportedly called to an animal shelter at approximately 8 a.m. on a day in March. According to reports, a contractor was on the premises, working on a boiler when a malfunction occurred. Reports indicate that the worker was exposed to a chemical being used in the system.

Criminal charges after trooper killed in work-related accident

During an emergency situation, there are certain people who are committed to helping those who may be injured or afraid. In fact, law enforcement officers are often willing to put their own safety on the line to help others. While there are a variety of measures in place in California and states across the country to protect first responders, they can still become the victim of a work-related accident.

In fact, a trooper in another state lost his life in such an accident in January. According to reports, the 34-year-old victim was on his way home when he responded to an accident. The accident is said to have involved multiple vehicles.

Trench collapse involved in fatal construction accident

While most everyone in California is aware that all workplaces hold some degree of risk, some may not fully realize the harm that those who work in construction face every day that they report to work. Unfortunately, a recent construction accident in another state emphasizes the dangers that these workers face. Reports indicate that the victim passed away as a result of injuries suffered in the accident.

The accident happened one day in February. According to reports, the victim was a young man who worked for a excavation company that had been contracted to work for the city on a road project. At the time of the incident, crews were reportedly installing new sewer and water lines. They were said to be moving safety equipment when the trench collapsed.

Investigation into fatal accident will likely take weeks

It is rare these days to find someone who has never ordered a package from Amazon. The fact that the company sells almost any product imaginable and can quickly deliver is often a draw that few people in California and across the country can resist. However, many people may be unaware of the effort that goes into that quick delivery. Unfortunately, three people are presumed dead after a fatal accident involving an airplane crash.

The incident happened just before 1 p.m. on a day in February and involved a plane that was operating for Amazon. Three people were on board. Unfortunately, reports indicate that communication with the plane was lost, and the plane went off the radar approximately 30 minutes from the airport.

The physical and mental challenges faced by firefighters

Firefighters in Southern California go through rigorous and physically demanding training to prepare for the emergencies they will face. If you are a firefighter, you might not pay enough attention to your own safety while you fight to save the lives of others. In addition to the risks of suffering severe burn injuries, the safety hazards involve many other threats.

You might be smart to remember that you will not be able to be an effective firefighter if you neglect your own health. There is no getting away from the fact that you will risk your life every time you are on a fire truck that goes through the fire station's bay doors, but learning about the additional risks might reduce exposure.

Man burned in industrial accident

The recovery process from severe burns is often lengthy, painful and could potentially be filled with life-threatening complications. Often, burns require specialized treatment that can quickly result in significant medical costs. When these injuries happen as a result of an industrial accident, victims in California and in other areas of the country may be entitled to workers' compensation insurance benefits.

Unfortunately, a man in another state may be entitled to such benefits after he was reportedly seriously injured in a workplace accident. The incident is said to have happened just before 9 a.m. on a day in February at Omnipure Filter Company. According to reports, the victim was working on machinery that sends products into an oven.

Airport construction accident sends man to hospital

Most workers in California and across the country have concerns about their safety in the workplace. As a result, most go to great lengths to ensure their personal safety as well as the safety of their co-workers. Unfortunately, a workplace accident can still occur despite these measures. In fact, a construction accident at an airport in another state recently sent a man to the hospital.

Reports indicate that the accident happened in the morning of a day in late January. It is said to have occurred at a construction site at an international airport. The 50-year-old male victim was reportedly an employee of Big D and Holder Construction, a company contracted to complete work at the airport.

Workers' compensation: 2 killed in medical hospital crash

Most people in California are likely aware that their employers provide them with many benefits. Unfortunately, because some benefits are rarely used, employees may be unsure about exactly what is provided, especially in the case in workers' compensation benefits following a work-related accident. In the case of a fatality, surviving family members may be unsure where to turn for help.

The family members of three people are now likely working to address their grief after a recent crash of a medical helicopter. Reports indicate that the helicopter was needed to transport a patient from one hospital to another on a day in late January, and the crew was on their way to pick up the patient. Unfortunately, communication with the helicopter was lost at approximately 7:20 a.m.
