Construction workers in California know that theirs is a highly regulated industry when it comes to safety on the job site. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration outlines very clear guidelines for what type of safety measures are to be followed and what type of training workers should have for different things. The goal is always to keep employees safe while working in what is known to be a dangerous line of work.

A concrete company that operates in the Bay Area is reported to have been investigated multiple times by OSHA in the last few years. One of those investigations actually resulted the company being issued a serious violation for not appropriately protecting its workers. Now the company looks ready to be involved in yet another investigation by the safety agency after the collapse of part of a building being worked on at a site in Oakland.

The collapse of the building caused the scaffolding to also give way and allowed as many as 20 construction workers to fall from the second story. Many of them became lodged in the wet concrete below and twelve required treament at a hospital for injuries sustained during their falls. Some workers were dangling from the scaffolding until rescue crews could get to them.

Workers’ compensation is one way that injured employees may be compensated after an accident but it may be wise for California residents to talk with an workers’ compensation attorney after an incident like this to learn about other possible means of compensation.
