Typical causes of workplace injuries

Each industry and every work site in California, including in San Diego, pose unique safety risks. However, the National Safety Council says seven safety hazards are responsible for most workplace injuries. Safety inspectors say housekeeping and the failure to clean up spills and clutter or debris cause injuries in all sectors. The lack of control, management and proper storage of chemicals often lead to chemical burns, skin conditions and respiratory products. This applies to facilities where chemicals are used in manufacturing processes, and also where strong chemicals are used for cleaning purposes.

Workplace injuries involving aerial lifts are preventable

Workers in the construction industry in San Diego face an endless list of hazards. Many of the dangers are known and addressed in the safety regulations prescribed by the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health. A significant number of workplace injuries -- some of which are fatal -- involve aerial lifts that come into contact with overhead power cables, tip-overs, falls, and instances in which workers are caught between the lift's guardrail or bucket and another object.
