Is your workplace safe? Recent statistics suggest that it may not be. The Department of Labor just released statistics on workplace fatalities in 2010 and the results are not good. Whether a worker is killed from a defective product in an industrial job or an employer neglects safety regulations, the message is clear. More needs to be done to keep workers safe.
Obviously there are certain jobs that are more hazardous than others. But these industries have regulations they must follow to protect them. Individuals working in dangerous industries such as oilfields and construction should know that worker’s compensation may not be the only remedy for workplace injuries in Texas.
