Man dies from workplace injuries after tire explodes

While the risk of being involved in an accident at work is prevalent in all occupations, those who work with heavy equipment may face unique risks. Regardless of the occupation, employers in California and other states are required to provide workers' compensation insurance coverage in the event an employee suffers workplace injuries. The family of a recently deceased man may be entitled to these benefits after an accident caused his death.

Regardless of the type of employment, almost all workers in California face risks as they complete their job responsibilities. As a result, the state requires employers to provide workers' compensation insurance coverage to protect workers financially in the event that they suffer workplace injuries. Several out-of-state workers may have questions regarding their eligibility for such compensation after a recent accident sent them to the hospital.

The dangers that police officers face are well known to most people in California. While most people know that they often place their own lives in danger while protecting others, many are also in danger when responding to calls due to the necessity of arriving at a scene quickly. For example, one police motorcycle officer suffered workplace injuries in a recent crash.

There are many workplaces across the country that have known hazards. While a person in California dealing with explosives, for example, is likely aware of the potential for danger, workers dealing with more mundane tasks may not be as aware of the dangers they face. Unfortunately, one out-of-state worker has recently been killed as a result of workplace injuries suffered in an incident that remains under investigation.

Workplace hazards are not restricted to particular industries, and California employers in all industries must follow prescribed safety regulations to prevent workplace accidents. Workers in industrial workplaces are typically exposed to equipment that can pose life-threatening hazards if not properly maintained. Employees must be informed of potential hazards and receive training in the proper operation of equipment to ensure protection from workplace injuries.
