Toxic exposure: Georgia worker dies in chemical explosion

A group of residents in the vicinity of a liquid chemical plant in Georgia recently had to be evacuated after a massive chemical explosion claimed the life of a worker. The evacuation was ordered to protect residents from deadly toxic exposure. At the time of the media report, investigators had not determined the specific cause of the blast.

Workplace injuries: OSHA cites newspaper for repeat violations

Many industries nationwide, including in Georgia, expose machine operators to the hazards associated with moving parts. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has strict safety regulations related to this hazard, and employers must take appropriate measures to prevent workplace injuries. Unfortunately, some companies continue to disregard these regulations, leading to OSHA launching a program to emphasize amputation hazards in the workplace.

Unfortunately, many workers continue to have financial difficulties after suffering workplace injuries because their workers' compensation benefit claims have been denied. This naturally brings about the additional stress of lost wages and unpaid medical bills along with the inability to maintain rent or mortgage payments, car installments and day-to-day expenses.
