Workplace knee injuries in California

When people think about workplace accidents and injuries, knee injuries are probably not one of the first types of injuries that come to mind. Knee injuries, however, are very common, and may result from workplace accidents or may occur as a repetitive stress injury related to the worker's job requirements.

The importance of a company enhancing safety measures

Workers from California may not realize that whenever a company hires large numbers of new employees, or large numbers of employees retire, it can significantly influence workplace safety. Companies that mainly consist of seasoned employees often experience the best safety awareness because employees have a better understanding of what dangers may be present on a job site. However, when a company makes major changes to their infrastructure in a small amount of time without strategically changing safety programs to accommodate new hires, the number of work-related injuries could rise.

Fatalities associated with highway work

As California residents may know, roadway construction workers have a difficult job that can present a hazard to both drivers and the workers. According to statistics presented by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the number of the deaths occurring at roadway construction sites remains at over 100 each year.

Contractors fined for work-related fatality

A contractor and a subcontractor have been assessed in excess of $100,000 in fines in connection with a May 2014 fatality. The general contractor on the project, a Colorado company, has been fined $54,935, and the subcontractor, a California company, has been fined $50,850. A 59-year-old man perished in the incident as he worked on a railroad bridge, which collapsed onto the freeway lanes below it.
