North Carolina agency investigates fatal accident at plant

Employers are charged with ensuring its employees aren't subjected to unsafe working environments. This means not only training employees on the working culture but also ensuring that all potential hazards are warded off by following correct safety procedures. Where an industrial accident does take place, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration may launch an investigation into the work accident.

OSHA pushing for temporary workers' safety

Finding a job is hard enough, but when North Carolina residents are employed in jobs for which they do not have adequate training, they may end up sustaining injuries on the job. This is the risk that temporary workers face routinely-the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) fears that these workers are placed in a variety of jobs for which they have not received proper training, sometimes even doing the most hazardous jobs in the workplace. According to them, temporary workers are more susceptible to workplace safety issues.

Second fire in same North Carolina plant sparks investigation

Even though every job carries with it some risk of injury, some jobs may be inherently more dangerous than others. These hazardous jobs could result in factory or industrial accidents. Workers are operating heavy machinery, often performing repetitive and boring tasks that could dull them into complacency and result in industrial accidents. Depending on the line of work, industrial workers could also be exposed to dangerous chemicals that could lead to factory explosions and fires.

Preventing workplace injuries in the aviation industry

When North Carolina residents travel by plane, they may not think twice about the airline's crews helping them load their luggage in the overhead compartment, showing them the emergency procedure and pushing heavy trolleys down the aisle. However, these airline workers place their bodies under extreme pressure and sustain work-related musculoskeletal disorders, including those that affect the back, upper extremities and neck.
