Accident in California kills 1 worker and injures another

One worker died after being electrocuted, and another worker suffered major injuries during an accident at a California high school on July 17. Emergency responders declared the worker, who was in his 20s, dead on the scene. The other worker was taken to the hospital and was in critical condition on the day of the accident. The two men were standing on a scaffold, helping a booster club to put up a banner, when the incident occurred.

Fire in confined space injures worker in California

On Dec. 17, 2013, a 37-year-old worker was severely burned while working for a California company in a confined space, according to Cal/OSHA. A confined space is one that is defined as big enough for a worker to get in, but possessing limited exit and entry openings as well as the potential for danger from area and atmosphere.

Higher-risk workers do not see correspondingly higher pay
