A fall from a ladder may lead to permanent impairment

Construction workers in Ohio face so many life-threatening safety hazards every day that some employees become complacent to those that seem less dangerous. These may include ladders, of which the potential risks are often disregarded. It is said that the height of a ladder fall does not determine the severity of the injuries but rather the objects struck by the falling worker on the way down. Hitting one's head against a hard object can cause brain or spinal cord injuries that could result in permanent impairment.

Safety violation might have led to fatality on construction site

Falling objects on construction sites will always be a danger to which Ohio workers will be exposed. This is one of the hazards that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration covers in the safety regulations for the construction industry. Unfortunately, the slightest safety violation can cause an object to fall, and the consequences may be devastating.

Possible safety violation might be cause of Ohio worker's death

While most employees in Ohio likely rely on their employers to protect them from harm in the workplace as required by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, many business owners are more concerned about profits and production. Sadly, the slightest safety violation could lead to a workplace accident in which lives are lost. Although OSHA typically investigates on-the-job fatalities, the surviving families will be left without income providers, regardless of the outcome of an investigation.

Chainsaw negligence can lead to permanent impairment

After stormy weather in Ohio, cleaning up will likely involve the use of dangerous equipment to clear away broken tree limbs and branches. Whenever industrial chainsaws, log splitters and other tools are used, the risks of suffering injuries that can cause permanent impairment will be many. For this reason, landscaping and tree care company owners must ensure that all equipment is in mint condition and that operators of these machines are properly trained.
