SUV lands on worker in fatal construction accident

Construction zones pose deadly hazards in Missouri and elsewhere. An apparently negligent driver recently caused the death of a worker in a construction zone in another state. This tragic construction accident took place on a recent Thursday afternoon. Paramedics transported the SUV driver to a medical facility for treatment of injuries of unknown severity. However, that will not ease the trauma of the deceased worker's surviving family members.

Workplace safety can reduce employee stress and injuries

Workers in industrial facilities in Missouri will always face multiple safety hazards. However, several factors are known to be dangerous, and addressing those issues may improve workplace safety. Workers who avoid asking for help when lifting heavy objects may suffer strains, sprains or tears of muscles, and employers who do not provide employees with adequate breaks can cause fatigue that might lead to serious on-the-job accidents with devastating consequences for both boss and worker.
