Digging near gas lines has the potential for serious ramifications. Most states place an emphasis on educating the public about the importance of digging with care. A recent incident in California further illustrates this point after a worker suffered fatal workplace injuries.

Construction accidents: Man killed in trench collapse

People in California face potentially unexpected and hidden dangers in their everyday lives. Many of these dangers arise in their places of employment. Because of the potential for harm in the workplace, states require employers to provide workers' compensation insurance coverage to ensure that workers are financially protected in the event of an injury at work. Construction accidents are a particular concern, as evidenced by a recent fatal accident involving a collapsed trench.

Fatal construction accidents increase in 2014

Employers in California and across the county, as well as organizations such as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, continue to work to help protect the safety of workers. While the total number of work-related fatalities has decreased over the course of the last two decades, 2014 showed an increase in the number of people killed in comparison with the years before. Of the fatalities in 2014, construction accidents were the leading cause.
