Work injury: Take safety precautions while working in a mine

Illinois workers in the mining industry face multiple safety hazards. It will always be a risky business, and anyone who considers a career as a mine worker can limit the chances of suffering a work injury by learning about the potential hazards and taking preventative steps. The primary precaution is to remain alert and never ignore the danger. A moment of complacency can cause a fatal workplace accident.

OSHA investigates fatal workplace injury at Illinois sawmill

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration will be conducting an investigation at an Illinois sawmill after a worker lost his life. The agency says the fatal workplace injury occurred on a recent Monday afternoon. The company manufactures lumber and specialty wood products, and it has multiple types of dangerous equipment on-site.

Be prepared for what to do after construction accidents

Although occupational injuries occur in all industries, construction workers are said to face higher risks than others. Despite the fact that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration provides comprehensive safety guidelines and regulations to prevent construction accidents, they continue to occur on sites nationwide, including in Illinois. Workers in this industry may do well to gain knowledge about what to do in such circumstances, rather than learning on the fly after being critically injured.

Road construction accidents threaten workers' lives

It will not be long before crews of road construction workers are out there to make Illinois roads safer by doing repairs, maintenance and improvements. Unfortunately, impatient and distracted vehicle operators often disregard the danger zones. Every year, lives are lost, and serious injuries suffered in road construction accidents that could have been avoided.
