What are employers supposed to do to prevent injured workers?

Every Colorado employee deserves a workplace free from dangerous conditions. It is the employer's responsibility to provide such a workplace. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), a federal agency, sets out rules and regulations designed to prevent injured workers in every industry.

Worker dies despite receiving medical treatment for his injuries

Colorado workers leave their families to go to work with the expectation of going home to them at the end of the workday. Sometimes, however, workplace accidents prevent that from happening. For example, a father, grandfather and friend is being mourned by his community. Recently, he suffered injuries in an on-the-job accident. Despite receiving medical treatment, he succumbed to those injuries.

Medical treatment was not enough to save worker's life

Colorado employers are required to incorporate safety measures prescribed by law in order to protect workers from harm. If a company fails to provide at least the minimum safety equipment and training, workers can easily suffer a variety of injuries that require medical treatment and range from minor to fatal. Of course, even if a company does everything right, the potential for an accident still exists, but the likelihood is presumed to be reduced.

Injured workers plunged 20 feet at construction site

Of all the hazards facing construction workers here in Colorado and around the country, falling is often touted as being one of the most common dangers that leads to injury or death. Sometimes, when work is being done at an existing business, the business' employees could be victims of the same hazards. For example, five people on the West Coast recently plunged 20 feet at a construction site at a casino. Reports do not indicate whether the injured workers were construction company employees or casino employees.
