Firefighters rescue worker following industrial accident

When people in California think of dangerous jobs, the first things that come to mind often include first responders such as firefighters and police officers. However, there are many occupations, such as those involving the use of heavy machinery, that are equally as dangerous to workers. In fact, a recent industrial accident in another state has sent a man to the hospital.

Many people may not realize that any occupation requiring the use of heavy machinery could result in workplace injuries. Even workers who are committed to safety could face unexpected conditions -- such as a broken down machine that requires repair -- that could ultimately put their lives at risk. For example, a tragic workplace accident at a California vineyard recently resulted in a fatality.

Workplace accident results in fatality in California

There are a variety of dangerous occupations in the United States -- often those most people would not generally consider when thinking of work-related dangers are the jobs that have the most risks. In fact, a recent workplace accident in California shows how certain occupations can be dangerous. As a result of the accident, a man lost his life.

Silica dust still posing major risk to workers

When you go to work, you may not give a lot of thought to the things that could potentially cause you harm. You might not think about the risks you face that could lead to a workplace accident or the environmental factors that could make you ill. However, certain types of workplaces come with more risks than others, including the risk of silica dust exposure. 

Officials investigate fatal work-related incident

There are likely multiple safety hazards in every workplace in the United States, regardless of the type of work that occurs there. As such, organizations such as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration have regulations in place to protect workers from injuries related to a work-related incident. Because accidents can happen despite these measures, employers in California and across the country are required to provide workers' compensation insurance benefits; a family in another state may qualify for these following a recent fatal accident.
