Noncompliance of safety rules can cause construction accidents

Two deaths in one day -- only hours apart -- come at a time when there are calls for stricter safety regulations in the building industry. However, looking at the circumstances surrounding these construction accidents, it seems the calls should be for more compliance with existing safety regulations. Two construction workers died in New York on a recent Thursday.

Carbon monoxide exposure can cause serious workplace illness

New York workers in industrial facilities typically have to face multiple safety hazards in the line of duty. Compliance with safety regulations is one way of preventing an on-the-job injury or a workplace illness. Employers are responsible for the health and safety of employees. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health recently reported that noncompliance with rules related to carbon monoxide exposure could lead to fatalities.

Injured workers are entitled to workers' compensation benefits

A spokesperson for the Transport Workers Union reported some of the details of a recent New York accident that involved an MTA bus. These are the types of incidents that could not only cause serious harm to passengers and property, but they can also lead to critically injured workers. Fortunately, this incident that occurred in the early morning hours of a recent Tuesday involved no passengers.

Construction zone worker succumbs to fatal work injury

New York workers who spend their days making the highways safer for road users put their lives on the line every day. Not only are they threatened by the equipment used in road construction but also by negligent drivers who fail to take due care when they travel through construction zones. On Aug. 23, a construction zone worker succumbed to a work injury that resulted from an accident on Aug. 14.
