Construction worker recovering in Los Angeles hospital

Working on a Los Angeles construction site requires that employees have physical stamina as well as requisite skills to do a job safely and competently. This owes to the fact that construction work has dangers inherent to its environment. One second a worker may be concentrating on hanging Sheetrock or pouring concrete, the next second he might find himself the victim of a construction accident. Life-altering occurrences such as this happen with disturbing regularity.

A Cal/OSHA representative said the incident happened in early December.

Tesoro fireball, which killed 7, could have been prevented

Many California residents may remember hearing about the deadly fireball that erupted at a Tesoro refinery in Washington in 2010, killing seven workers. The seven workers were engulfed in a fire when a heat exchanger burst into flames while they were checking another for leaks. The refinery explosion has been labeled the deadliest in the U.S. since the 2005 explosion at a BP refinery, which claimed 15 lives and resulted in workplace injuries to 180 people.
