Fall from second floor injures construction workers

In order to work on a California construction site, you need to have steady nerves and quick reflexes. Construction workers face potential dangers on a daily basis. In order to avoid suffering construction accidents, the workers must always be alert to their surroundings. Unfortunately, sometimes events play out so fast that there's no time to stave off disaster.

California workplace accident points to poor training

California workers know that there is no substitute for experience. This is an extremely significant concept when applied to jobs having an element of physical danger. One of management's most important responsibilities is to assess workers’ ability to perform tasks so as to avoid putting them in situations they may not be prepared to handle.

How to help prevent workplace injuries among older workers

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that by 2015, employees over the age of 65 will represent 20 percent of the American workforce. Twenty-five percent of the workforce will be past 55 years of age by the year 2020. In the interest of decreasing the chance of serious workplace injuries, Los Angeles construction and industrial companies should start considering how to best accommodate older workers.

5 workers injured in gas plant explosion

Some Southern Californians may have heard that an explosion disrupted life in a small town in Washington recently. The blast occurred in Plymouth, a small town near the Washington-Oregon border, at the storage facility of Williams Northwest Pipeline. The plant houses liquefied natural gas. Five workplace injuries were reported and around 400 people who live within 2 miles of the plant were evacuated.

Concern over construction site falls prompts stand-down

California construction workers can attest that much of construction work is done off the ground. Even when working on a single-story building, construction workers may find themselves elevated 30 feet or more. Construction on a skyscraper may entail working hundreds of feet in the air. A fall from virtually any height has the potential to cause physical harm. Therefore, it is not surprising that many of the most serious construction injuries are the result of falls.
