Man killed by cap in industrial accident

All workplaces in Pennsylvania and across the country hold some degree of risk. Though employers and workers can take reasonable measures to reduce the risks, a piece of equipment that malfunctions, for example, may be difficult to anticipate. Unfortunately, a man in another state recently died after he was involved in an industrial accident.  

The accident happened on a day in mid-August. According to reports, the incident occurred at M&E Industries Inc. A cap on a tank described as "highly pressurized" is said to have come loose.

Workplace accidents: Details unclear in fatal fall

Anyone in Pennsylvania who works at great heights faces risks of injuries in the workplace.

Man suffers work-related injuries in forklift accident

When a worker in Pennsylvania is required to use heavy equipment to fulfill his or her job responsibilities, there is a potential of being involved in an accident involving serious injury. Unfortunately, a recent accident in another state has resulted in work-related injuries. The worker's injuries are said to be due to an accident involving a forklift.

The accident reportedly occurred one afternoon on a day in late July. Rescue workers were called to the scene after receiving reports of a man who has trapped under a forklift while in the water. According to reports, the 47-year-old victim, an employee of a seafood company, was driving a forklift on a pier when he is said to have backed through a wooden barrier.

Workplace accidents: 1 killed, several injured

In a Pennsylvania workplace, there are often unexpected issues that can arise that may ultimately put the safety of employees at risk. Though measures can be taken to reduce the potential of such a scenario occurring, workplace accidents can still happen. Unfortunately, a fatal accident in another state is currently under investigation.

The incident happened one morning on a day in late July. Reports indicate that the fire department reported to an industrial site after receiving a call about a worker trapped under heavy equipment. When rescue workers arrived, they reportedly discovered one man pinned and four others suffering from injuries.

Identity of man killed in industrial accident released

Many Americans prepare for their work shift in the same way every single day. They most likely report to their shift relatively secure in the knowledge that they will return home in the same condition in which they left. Unfortunately, this is not always the case for some workers in Pennsylvania and across the country. In fact, one man recently passed away as a result of an industrial accident that occurred in another state.

The victim of the accident was a 41-year-old man. Reports indicate that rescue workers were contacted one evening on a day in late July. According to reports, the man was at a construction site when a steel beam fell on him.

Man killed in industrial accident

As many people in Pennsylvania are aware, roofers face a great deal of risk in their occupation. Simply working at great heights in itself can be risky. Unfortunately, a man in another state has recently lost his life in an industrial accident.

Rescue workers received a call about the incident just before 10 a.m. on a morning in July. According to reports, the man worked from a roofing contractor. The 43-year-old victim was reportedly at a job at East Coast Logistics & Distribution Inc where he was attempting to place materials on a roof using a lift.

Pennsylvania construction accident remains under investigation

Because there are multiple known hazards in the workplace, efforts are often made to protect employee safety. In fact, organizations such as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration put rules in place in an attempt to reduce the number of workplace accidents. Unfortunately, such precautions are not always enough to stop a construction accident from happening in Pennsylvania and across the country.

In fact, officials in Pennsylvania are currently investigating a recent accident that resulted in a fatality. Authorities claim that they received a report of the accident around 1:30 p.m. on a day in July. Unfortunately, the victim -- whose identity was not released in the immediate aftermath of the accident -- died at the scene.

Workplace accidents: Postal worker's death under investigation

All occupations in Pennsylvania and across the country hold some degree of risk. A person who has a job that would normally be considered relatively safe from workplace accidents during the majority of the year could face additional risks during the summer when temperatures soar. In fact, a recent incident in another state is under investigation after a postal worker was discovered deceased in her mail truck.

The incident happened on a day in July. On the day she was discovered, reports indicate that the temperature was 117 degrees. Unfortunately, mail trucks often are not air conditioned, and the temperatures inside can feel like an oven to some.

Workers' Compensation and Parking Lot Injuries

Whether it's an unsalted icy surface, a deep pothole in the pavement or a reckless speeding driver, parking lots - yes, parking lots - can be a lot more treacherous than they appear when it pertains to work-related injuries. Typically, an injury sustained while walking to and from your car didn't actually occur while you were on the clock inside your place of employment, but it can still qualify for compensation benefits under certain circumstances.
