While industrial workers in Colorado likely recognize the potential dangers of their chosen profession, their families may be concerned about the safety of their loved ones whenever they are at work. Many industrial workers are the sole breadwinners for their families, and a workplace accident may lead to the loss of income. Although workers' compensation benefits may provide financial aid, families may be unsure of the availability of death benefits, and how to go about filing a claim.
The owners of industrial companies are expected to provide safe workplace surroundings and proper safety training to all their workers. When safety regulations are disregarded, workplace accidents may result in severe injuries, or even death. A worker at a scrap yard in Denver recently lost his life in a tragic workplace accident.
