An independent contractor was #killed  doing a home improvement job at a home in #Philadelphia . His parents are suing the homeowners and four electrical contractors for things like funeral expenses. The man was lowering a wire down to the other workers when it touched a copper pipe that wasn't properly discharged or grounded.

Some jobs may create a higher risk environment than others. The #highestriskoccupation , truck drivers, had the lowest median pay of $27,530 while the fourth highest, pilots and aircraft engineers make about $129,600. While the job may be more #dangerous  it does not mean they will make more money.

#OSHA  has reported that #healthcare  workers are twice as likely to sustain a #muskuloskeletal   #injury  than construction workers. Muskuloskeletal injuries that are mainly seen are tendinitis, muscle strains, and lower back and rotator cuff tears. #PittsburghWorkersCompensationLawyer
 
#Musculoskeletal   #injuries  are the number one problem that #healthcare  workers face, as reported by #OSHA . Healthcare workers suffer these kinds of injuries twice as much as construction workers. The most common of the injuries are lower back and rotator cuff tears, tendinitis and variations of muscle strains.

An #Amazon  warehouse is now being #investigated  by #OSHA  because of the two #deaths  that have occurred recently. The first #death  involved a man who got caught on a conveyor belt while sorting packages, the second is still being investigated.

A worker was #killed   #onthejob  recently in #NewYork . The 22-year-old was operating a walk-behind forklift when the weight of another forklift was too much. It began to roll back on him and ended up crushing him. #PennsylvaniaWorkersCompensationLawyer
 
A 22-year-old was #killed  at work when he was crushed behind a forklift. He was using a walk-behind forklift, where you walk behind it, to push another forklift. The weight could not be supported and rolled back down crushing the worker.

About 50,000 people in the US die from #traumaticbraininjuries  each year. Workers, especially #constructionworkers , are more at risk of sustaining a head #injury  on the job. About 4 in 10 #concussions  are caused by falls.
