Injuries to communication tower workers

Maryland workers in high-risk occupations may be able to learn a lesson from a conference spearheaded by the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the Federal Communications Commission. The February 2016 workshop brought a number of representatives from the communication tower industry together to highlight ongoing safety issues. Although factors like work-site design were revealed to impact safety, employer operating standards also played significant roles.

An overview of nonfatal occupational injuries

Although fatal occupational injuries may garner a high level of attention from Maryland residents, nonfatal issues can be a significant concern for both employers and employees as well. In 2014, state statistics indicated that more than 68,000 cases were recorded for all injuries and illnesses connected with Maryland workplaces. More than 75 percent of these cases occurred in private industries.

Companies face consequences in industrial workers' accidents

Maryland industrial workers are often working in close proximity to large pieces of equipment that sometimes lead to serious injuries or even death. Many companies will do what they can to safeguard the lives -- and sometimes the limbs -- of their employees by implementing safety procedures, providing the proper equipment and conducting safety training. However, when a company does not take the time to provide employees with the proper safety equipment and training, the potential for industrial workers' accidents rises dramatically.
