An Ohio envelope printing company has had charges pressed against them by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration for not guarding their employees from mobile machine parts that were on production lines. The charges total up to about $88,200. Three people were affected by failures of the printing company. Firstly, last summer an employee suffered an amputation when his finger was stuck between print rollers. Secondly, in September, an additional two amputations occurred. One of those injuries took place due to inadequate safety guards put in place by the printing company.
It is required by law that companies protect their employees to prevent injury from taking place while they are working. There are a few different types of worker’s compensation in the state of Missouri. For example, your employer should offer you medical treatment to help you regain your health after you experience an injury at work. In addition, while out of work, it is possible to earn 2/3 of your weekly wage. Also, if your injury has resulted in disability, you can be given a tax-free compensation for those injuries.
