While summertime in Philadelphia is an occasion for high school and college students to enjoy a well-deserved break from their studies, it is also a time for some to pick up a temporary job to earn money for the coming academic year. Many teenagers and young adults may find themselves in unfamiliar work environments, however, some of which carry the risk of workplace accidents.

Chemical explosion injuries two Pennsylvania factory workers

A number of industries require the use of caustic and reactive chemicals in order to manufacture their end products.

Report: OSHA slow to address dangerous workplace conditions

Some prior posts on this blog have mentioned the Occupational Safety and Health Administration in its role as investigator of workplace accidents in Pennsylvania and around the country.

OSHA report finds safety violations at Verizon after accident

As children, we may have seen downed power lines around our Pennsylvania neighborhoods. Our parents wisely cautioned us to stay away from them. Live wires can pose a significant risk to the health and life of anyone who comes into contact with them. Telecommunications workers operate around power lines every day, but usually are kept free from harm through proper safety measures. Employees have the right to expect that their employers are following applicable safety measures. The death of one worker illustrates how quickly things can go wrong when correct procedures are not observed.

Workplace accident leads to death of man at construction site

Many of the consumer goods in this country pass through a few massive distribution centers, where they are unloaded and reshipped to various cities, including Philadelphia.
