Back in February of this year, a worker in Ohio was seriously injured after being pinned and crushed between two heavy pieces of machinery. The workers' pelvis was fractured in multiple places. This accident happened in a steel mill that is being run by Vallourec.
It's that time of year again! Summer is winding down, so the kids – and their teachers – are gearing up to go back to school. With a new school year comes opportunities for development, the learning of new skills and subjects, playing sports, participating in activities and the feeling of accomplishment that comes with learning. Something else comes at this time of year, though, and it's an unfortunate byproduct of teachers and students being back in class: a rise in workers' compensation and workplace injury claims by teachers, aides, custodians and other school staff members.
