Fatal workplace injuries: School custodian dies after ladder fall

Regardless of the industry in which a person is employed, safety hazards will always be present.

The Apple Valley Unified School District recently reported the death of an employee who has provided custodian services to schools in the district for many years.

Criminal charges follow fatal workplace injuries investigation

The California Division of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration works in close cooperation with the San Francisco District Attorney in ensuring that criminal behavior that causes injuries and deaths in the workplace is properly addressed. As part of the agency's commitment, a criminal investigation was launched into the 2012 death of a worker whose fall caused fatal workplace injuries. Following a thorough investigation, the construction company owner and a foreman were charged with manslaughter -- to which both men pleaded not guilty at a recent hearing.
