The Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office has confirmed the death of a 45-year-old gas well worker. The man died earlier this week at West Penn Hospital in Bloomfield, where he had been admitted after suffering serious burns in an explosion at the well site.
When you go into work, you have an expectation that you are going to come out of the worksite whole. Federal labor laws set safety standards across Pennsylvania. Each type of work has its own set and if an employer fails to meet the standards, workplace injuries due to dangerous conditions can result.
Every human activity has its risks. Workplace risks are among the greatest we face in our daily lives. While some jobs are more risky than others, each has its dangers.
City and federal officials have been investigating a construction site in Philadelphia where a recent accident led to two individuals being injured. One of the victims was a construction worker at the site. The other was a city firefighter who reportedly suffered a head injury after collapsing while responding to the scene.
