Oklahoma company owners are responsible for the safety of their workers. Regardless of the type of industry, preventing workplace injuries can only be achieved by following the strict safety regulations that are prescribed by the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration. However, many workers suffer on-the-job injuries that are caused by negligent disregard of safety regulations by supervisors and employers.
Reports about fatal work accidents in industries known to be dangerous are not uncommon. However, fatal accidents in bowling alleys are not common at all. Even so, a recent incident is a reminder to Oklahoma residents that hazardous conditions that can result in a workplace injury can exist in almost all industries.
