Workplace accident at cosmetics factory kills 1 injures many

New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo recently initiated an investigation in which multiple agencies will take part to determine various aspects of a devastating explosion that took place at a cosmetics manufacturing plant in the town of New Windsor. Reportedly, the workplace accident occurred shortly after 10 a.m. on Nov. 20. Hazmat teams and firefighters rushed to the scene, and a second explosion rocked the facility while rescue workers were inside the burning building.

Safety violations at supermarkets can cause workplace accidents

Employers in New York and other states must prioritize employee safety at all times. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration recently reported its concern over the ongoing noncompliance with safety regulations that inspectors found at three Fair Trades Supermarkets in New York. An OSHA area director said the employees at these stores were exposed to several unaddressed safety hazards that could result in workplace accidents.

Workplace illness: Cold stress threatens outdoor workers

At the start of every winter, New York workers who have to work outdoors will likely feel anxious about the impact their work environments will have on their health. Cold stress is a workplace illness that can be fatal if not treated promptly. This condition is caused by the environmental cold that affects workers who are exposed to air temperatures that are also cold. Cold stress risks are even higher when wind speeds increase because it increases the chill factor by making the air temperature feel colder against the skin.

Construction accidents involving scaffolds could be life-changing

Scaffolding can be life-threatening structures, and related safety regulations are strict. Many injuries in construction accidents result from collapsing scaffolds or falls from scaffolds due to safety violations. Victims of scaffolding accidents in New York may suffer long-term consequences.
