Little-known danger poses threat to workplace safety for many

In Feb. 2016, a manufacturing plant employee worked on a lathe as part of his normal duties. Unbeknown to him, the events that followed would change his life forever. He encountered a danger that lurks in many manufacturing plants throughout the nation -- including here in Missouri -- and poses a serious threat to workplace safety for countless employees.

Most likely, the vast majority of Missouri residents get up to go to work never anticipating that their job could pose a serious danger to themselves. However, while many who are employed in the construction business may indeed contemplate the dangers they face, probably relatively few expect to experience a life-threatening injury. Unfortunately, a construction site accident -- including a crane accident -- can lead to serious or even fatal injuries.

One of the most satisfying rewards for many Missouri workers may be seeing a project coming to fruition. That may be especially true for those whose labor results in a new structure. Unfortunately, these same workers face many hazards that can result in a serious construction accident.

Working in construction and home improvement can be a risky undertaking. In spite on the precautions that one may take to avoid hazardous conditions -- as most Missouri workers know -- not every accident can be anticipated or prevented. When a serious workplace accident occurs, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, or OSHA, frequently conducts an investigation as a means of preventing further injuries in the future.
