Construction worker severely burned in workplace accident

Employers in Arizona are responsible for protecting their employees from illness and injury. Unfortunately, many business owners fail to keep workers safe, often with devastating consequences. A recent workplace accident in Phoenix that left a worker with severe burn injuries underscored the opinion of some that profits are often the priority instead of worker safety.

Harness can arrest fall from scaffolding but cause fatal injury

Construction workers in Arizona face the same hazards as those in other states. They are also entitled to equal protection from workplace hazards under state and federal laws as prescribed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Two construction workers in another state were fortunate to be rescued from where they were suspended from safety harnesses after the scaffolding on which they were working collapsed.

Fatal workplace accident leads to prison sentence for employer

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has strict safety standards with which employers in Arizona and other states must comply. Employers who violate those standards put the lives of workers at risk. A victim of a workplace accident is typically eligible for workers' compensation benefits to cover medical expenses and lost wages regardless of who was at fault.
