Widow of killed sanitation worker helps pass legislation

Although an injury could occur in any type of work environment, some occupations are significantly more dangerous than others. This is especially true for jobs that require workers to use heavy machinery or work in dangerous environments, such as near traffic, at extreme heights or on the water. A dangerous work environment could pose risks to the health and safety of the workers, which requires the employee to take substantial steps to ensure all employees are properly trained and provided with safety equipment. But, even when the proper steps are made, serious and fatal work accidents could still occur, so it is important for employers to keep their safety regulations up to date.

Snow and ice covered roads create major hazards for drivers, which could lead to a serious accident. Furthermore, major roads could still be filled with vehicles even when the weather is bad. This could lead to serious multi-vehicle collisions involving injuries, damage and even fatalities.

Even when safety measures are instituted, some roadways still experience accidents. A collision at an intersection is possible even if adequate traffic signs and signals are installed. Furthermore, a negligent driver could easily cause a serious crash due to distractions, speeding or failing to yield. No matter the cause, a car accident often results in severe damages and serious injuries.

For most, the workplace is an enjoyable and important environment for employees. Not only is it where they spend much of their time but it is also a big part of their livelihood. For some workers, the work environment can be one of high risk and danger. Enduring extreme hazards on a daily basis could put their life at risk. Even when health and safety measures are put in place, tragedy could ensue and a worker could be seriously injured or even killed.
