California worker gets injured in workplace accident

An employee at a California clothing donation facility suffered an arm injury after getting into an accident involving a conveyor belt. Firefighters and paramedics took the man to the hospital for further care after working to stop the machine and get his arm free. The man had gotten his arm caught in the machine, which the facility uses to sort clothing.

California may limit workers

California lawmakers in the state Assembly have just passed a bill that would prevent professional athletes who have not spent 80 percent of their careers on a state team from filing for workers' compensation in certain circumstances. The bill has not yet become law because it still needs to pass through the California Senate, but it has some labor groups concerned. The new law would prevent out-of-state athletes from filing for workers' compensation for non-specific cumulative injuries.

A look at workplace safety on May Day

May Day, celebrated on May 1, has traditionally been a time to think about workers around the world and their safety and satisfaction in the workplace. United States laws such as workers' compensation statutes are presumed to protect American workers, and most people assume that workplaces in the United States are safer than those overseas, especially in light of reports such as that of a building collapse that killed several in Bangladesh.

Disney Contractor cited for safety violations after fall

While cleaning the outside of Disneyland's Space Mountain attraction last November, a 37-year-old contractor was injured after a fall that caused several bones to be broken. The Disney contractor who employed the worker has been struck with a fine of $60,995 that was levied by California safety regulators who maintain that the contractor failed to provide anchors for the employee, as reported by The Orange County Register. It is unclear whether the victim has filed for worker's compensation, but the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health stated that the company, HSG Inc., which is based out of Los Angeles, failed to adhere to multiple safety rules.
