Industrial Accidents Archives

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.  

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.

Fatal industrial accident remains under investigation

Employees in all industries in Pennsylvania and across the country work hard to observe all safety regulations. They do so to ensure both their personal safety as well as the safety of their co-workers. Despite these efforts, however, an industrial accident can still occur.

1 killed, 1 injured in out-of-state industrial accident

Regardless of the job, all occupations in Pennsylvania and across the country hold some degree of risk. Though measures can be taken to protect worker safety, an industrial accident can still occur. Unfortunately, an accident in another state that killed one person and seriously injured another likely remains under investigation.

OSHA investigates fatal workplace accident

The vast majority of employers in Pennsylvania and across the country are dedicated to protecting the safety of their workers. In fact, one company with a facility in a neighboring state reportedly starts each shift with discussing safety issues with employees and provides training that is specific to each employee's role. However, despite these efforts, accidents can still happen as demonstrated by a recent fatal workplace accident at that company.

Fatal industrial accident under investigation

Employers and workers in Pennsylvania and across the country often go to great lengths to implement and follow all recommended safety and health precautions. Unfortunately, an industrial accident can happen in even the safest of environments, leaving victims and their loved ones coping with the consequences. A family in another state now must face life without their family member after he was involved in a workplace accident.

Fatigue risks for commercial truck drivers

Everyone has an internal clock that causes the body to prepare for sleep at night, and in most people, it slows alertness down at siesta time in the early afternoon. Those are the times at which commercial truck drivers in Pennsylvania and other states put their lives on the line if they do not get enough sleep. Denying their bodies the necessary rest causes a sleep debt that could lead to fatigue and falling asleep while driving -- even microsleeps for seconds at a time can be fatal.

Brother of industrial accident victim explains what happened

Many families in Pennsylvania are close-knit. Some family members even choose to work together. Unfortunately, one man in another state details how his brother was recently killed in an industrial accident while they worked together.
