25 Most Dangerous Jobs Released
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
Workplace accidents can happen at any company but the type of industry can determine how dangerous
an accident really can be. The 25 most dangerous jobs list was released
and the top of the list was logging related jobs, fishing industry employment
and aircraft pilots and flight engineers. These fields all pose dangers
even though companies are required to abide by strict rules and regulations.
Slips, trips and falls can prove to be serious in these fields but are
always a risk at any job.
Safety standards are put in place to help protect employees from job related
accidents. The Occupational Safety and Health Act, known as OSHA, were
established to enforce safety standards in the workplace. Any company
that has a workplace accident is required to report it to OSHA. Depending
on the severity of the accident an investigation may be needed. Companies
are expected to follow the rules and regulations of OSHA and to do everything
possible to give employees a safe working environment. However, some industries
are far more dangerous than others so companies may enforce even stricter
rules for employees. Anyone that is hurt at work and requires medical
attention should contact a personal injury attorney immediately. An experienced
personal injury attorney will investigate the victim’s case and
determine if they are able to seek legal action for their injuries.
