California fire creates concern about construction site safety

The charred 16,000 acres in San Bernardino left by the recent brush fire serves as yet another reminder of the threat such blazes pose to Californians every year as the weather turns hot. But as the flames were extinguished, the investigation into the source of the fire began to take precedence. Ultimately, investigators attributed the incident to a construction site accident that occurred when a backhoe caught fire at 4S Ranch.

California heat can be a construction worker�s foe

This being sunny California, most of us are familiar with symptoms of heat illness. Thirst, fatigue and dizziness can be good indicators that we have been in the sun for too long. These are signals we should all address immediately. This is especially true for construction workers, for whom the sun can be a relentless and draining foe.

Automotive facility in California cited for industrial accident

Tesla, an automotive company that specializes in building electric cars, recently incurred fines totaling $89,000, issued by California Division of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. The fines were brought about by an investigation into an industrial accident, which happened last November at the company’s Fremont California facility. The accident resulted in several workplace injuries. Tesla was cited with seven safety violations. Of those violations, six were deemed as being serious.

OSHA looks to reduce a severe toxic exposure threat

California construction sites can be steeped with many readily recognizable hazards. Heavy machinery, scaffoldings and piles of debris all hold a host of potential dangers. Yet of equal concern should be those threats that are not so easily visible.
