Injured workers often victims of negligent business owners

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration's focus on companies who expose their employees to fall hazards has resulted in multiple citations and thousands of dollars in fines.

OSHA inspectors recently cited a construction company in another state after finding the same violations on multiple visits.

Grain worker dies 2 days after he was injured at work

The safety of grain workers nationwide, including in Colorado, is typically in the hands of their employers. This is a dangerous industry, and in many cases, company owners fail to inform workers of the life-threatening risks faced every day, and the safety precautions that should be taken. A grain facility in a neighboring state was recently cited for multiple serious and willful safety violations after an investigation into a tragic incident in May. A worker died two days after he was injured at work.
