Man suffers workplace injuries when he is ejected from rail car

Georgia has some of the country's largest power plants, employing thousands, of people. Many of these workers are likely exposed to a multitude of risks on a daily basis. Employers are responsible for maintaining high safety standards by complying with governmental regulations. Unfortunately, many safety hazards go unaddressed, and serious workplace injuries are often the result.

Over 30 workplace accident deaths in Georgia since October 2014

Georgia residents were recently reminded of the tragic 2011 death of a 19-year-old worker who lost his life in an on-the-job accident when the family was awarded $29 million by a Fulton County jury. The jury found that the company's disregard of safety regulations led to the fatal workplace accident in which the young worker burned to death. During Labor Day week, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration recognized the Georgia workers who lost their lives since the start of its fiscal year, dating back to the beginning of Oct. 2014.
