Mother protests safety violation that caused her son's death

The family of a 23-year-old worker who died at the plant of an Ohio plastics manufacturer on July 20, 2016, is protesting his death, urging stricter safety regulations. Although the family believes a safety violation caused their loved one's death, they are unable to do anything about it. State law prevent them from holding the employer responsible unless it can be shown the employer acted intentionally or was grossly negligent.

Even 1 safety violation can have devastating consequences

Long hours, heavy machinery and a variety of power tools make the construction industry extremely dangerous. Every safety violation can lead to a fatal workplace accident. Not all Ohio employers in this industry prioritize the health and safety of employees, and it is often up to workers to look out for themselves.

Electrical safety is vital to avoid permanent disability

While electricians in Ohio are typically familiar with the dangers posed by electricity, others may encounter those hazards unintentionally. Outdoor workers who are uninformed or lack safety training may accidentally come in contact with powerful sources of electricity. If not handled with care, electrical equipment can cause shocks that can result in permanent disability.

Ohio company cited for 30 safety violations

Amsted Rail Company Inc. in Ohio has been added to the Severe Violator Enforcement Program of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. This follows two investigations -- the first one in January and the second one in February of this year. In total, investigators identified 30 safety violations during these inspections.
