Because of the dangers that many face in their workplaces, the federal government and states such as California create laws and regulations with the intention of protecting the safety of all employees. Unfortunately, even with these in place, accidents can still happen -- potentially endangering the lives of workers. For example, one out-of-state man was recently killed as a result of workplace injuries suffered at an airport.
The accident happened one Thursday morning in late June. According to reports, the 57-year-old victim was an employee of Manafort Construction. He was working on a water main in a trench as part of safety upgrades at an airport.
