Some hospitals disregard workers' rights to safe workplaces

Employees of hospitals in Colorado are exposed to multiple health hazards. Chemical substances that are handled by health workers can be life threatening. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration recently issued citations after an investigation was launched to determine compliance with safety regulations at a hospital in another state. Workers' rights include protection from safety hazards, and hospitals are being closely monitored to limit instances of health workers being injured at work due to safety violations.

Company cited for violating workers' rights to safe work places

Owners of tank cleaning companies nationwide, including those in Colorado, have to comply with safety regulations pertaining to the particular hazards of that industry. Failure to do so is a violation of workers' rights to safe workplace environments that are free of known hazards. Following the completion of a recent investigation in another state, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration proposed $226,000 in penalties for a company's continued failure to protect its workers.

Family of worker killed at glass factory can claim death benefits

Losing a loved one in a workplace accident is naturally a devastating experience for any Colorado family. Along with the emotional loss, the sudden lack of income can leave a family struggling. Fortunately, death benefits offered through the workers' compensation insurance fund may relieve the financial burden. A man in another state recently lost his life after a workplace accident at the premises of a glassware manufacturer.

Investigators are looking into such an incident that recently claimed the life of a worker in another state that could result in the award of death benefits to her survivors.
