Employer negligence blamed for falls in the workplace

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration exists to ensure that workplaces around the nation follow proper procedure to ensure the safety of employees. Though most employers in North Carolina and elsewhere do whatever is necessary to keep workers safe and healthy, a troubling statistic has emerged that calls that idea into question. The Bureau of Labor found that the number of workers who suffer a fatal fall while at work is growing. Experts say that employer negligence may be the root cause.

Plant fined by OSHA after employee sustains workplace injury

Employees have a reasonable expectation of being safe while at work. They trust that their employers have taken necessary precautions to provide a safe work environment and have given them proper training to safely execute their job functions. Unfortunately, this doesn't always occur, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration may have to step in to ensure that companies are complying with safety standards. This is what happened after one North Carolina-based manufacturing plant employee suffered a workplace injury.

OSHA fines company for employees injured in accident on the job

When workers in North Carolina are injured while on the job, it can have far-reaching consequences. Their health and well-being can be affected, not to mention that of their families. If the employee is unfortunate enough to have to miss work after an accident on the job, he or she may worry about the effect on his or her income. Two employees from out of state may be facing just that dilemma after an explosion at their workplace last year left them with injuries, as their company contests the findings of government officials.
