Workplace accidents involving emergency vehicles are prevalent

Data gathered by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration led to concern over the high number of emergency vehicles that crash while responding to crises nationwide.

You don't have to do an unsafe job

Your employer tells you to do something that you know is clearly unsafe and puts you at serious risk. Maybe they want you to work near live power lines, for instance, or maybe they tell you to use a 40-foot ladder that is clearly rusted, broken and neglected. Regardless of exactly what the risk looks like, it all comes back to the fact that you know you could suffer serious injuries -- or even lose your life -- if an accident happens.

Common workplace injuries suffered by concrete workers

Each worker on a construction site in California faces numerous general safety hazards along with those that are unique to his or her job. Concrete workers, for example, face the typical slip and fall dangers, and they are vulnerable to struck-by incidents.

Along with these workplace injuries, they face the risk of suffering concrete burns.
