Common transportation and warehouse industry work accidents

Workers in the transportation and warehouse industries face many potential hazards, putting them at an increased risk for workplace accidents. According to the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation, approximately 3,500 employees in the transportation and warehouse industries suffer occupational injuries each year.

Ohio workers work hard at their jobs every day. They expect that their workplace will be safe and that they won't have to worry about a workplace accident.

A recent investigation shows that companies who have had a workplace death are not paying their full OSHA fine.

The United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration is responsible for ensuring worker safety by devising and enforcing regulations that require employers to follow certain safety precautions. If an employer refuses to obey an OSHA order, the result can be a heavy fine. An Ohio foundry recently learned this lesson when a follow-up OSHA inspection found that the company was continuing to expose workers to workplace accidents involving machinery and fall hazards.
