Oil and gas workers in Texas face serious hazards at work

Many of our readers either work in an industrial environment or know someone who does. This field is immensely popular in this state, and offers great work opportunities for employees as the so-called drilling boom continues to open up new jobs for people across the state. However, these employees may be finding that they are working in an extremely dangerous job.

Claim: Steel company had long history of safety violations

Many people in Texas are familiar with the Occupational and Safety Health Administration, an agency tasked with investigating workplaces and issuing fines to those that are unsafe. While these actions prevent many accidents from happening, they cannot prevent them all. Much of OSHA's work comes in after a workplace accident has occurred and someone has already been seriously injured. And even when they issue fines to unsafe or noncompliant companies, there are still employers who fail to take these measures seriously and continue to operate dangerous companies. 

Employees take note: Small businesses focused on workplace safety

No matter what job you have or where you work, there is the potential for suffering a workplace illness or injury. It may be true that those who work on industrial or construction job sites could be at a greater risk of suffering catastrophic injuries while working, but the fact is that any person is at some risk of getting hurt while working

Should car accident victim receive workers' compensation?

Workers who are injured on the job are generally eligible to receive workers' compensation benefits in Texas. However, this can be a frustrating process for injured workers who have their claims for these benefits denied. It may be clear to you that an injury or illness was suffered while working, but insurance companies may not see it the same way.
