Caltrans fined for worker risk in homeless camp cleanups

The causes of worker injuries may be endless. These are not necessarily limited to workplace accidents and may also include dangerous or unhealthy conditions. Earlier this month, CalOSHA fined Caltrans for not taking appropriate actions to protect its workers cleaning up homeless camps under bridges and along roadways.

Manufacturer may pay $250,000 penalty for fatal accident

Safety requirements for manufacturing equipment may be vital to prevent accidents that seriously injure or even kill workers. In its investigation of one of these workplace accidents, the California Division of Occupational Health and Safety cited a ceramic materials manufacturer in Santa Ana for its alleged failure to guard machinery and provide proper training. A worker was killed in an accident involving this device in Sept. 2018.

Tesla factory facing injuries and safety violations

Tesla's 5.3 million-square foot plant in Fremont California is a state-of-the-art facility which has over 15,000 full-time workers and contract workers that assemble 254,000 vehicles. While having the most employees of any American facility and the latest innovation, the plant also has the age-old problem of safety violations and workplace accidents.

Plumbing firm investigated for airport safety scare

In one case, California's Division of Occupational Safety and Health is investigating a plumbing firm for an incident at the San Francisco International Airport in Dec. that impacted two workers and revealed risks of workplace accidents.

Small farms exempt from safety oversight

The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration plays a vital role in the enforcement of workplace safety. But OSHA has no power to investigate workplace accidents, enforce safety rules, and impose violations for safety violations at small farms. This removes a layer of deterrence against negligent farms. A small farm is not exempt from these accidents, however. Some evidence even shows that, on average, these farms are more dangerous than other workplaces.
