Workplace injuries: Worker loses hand while grinding meat

Oklahoma workers in all industries are exposed to safety hazards, many of them unique to the type of work they do. However, basic safety regulations exist for all industries, and compliance with those can prevent most workplace injuries. Most owners of industrial companies know that equipment must be fitted with safety guards to prevent workers from suffering workplace injuries caused by moving machine parts. It's particularly important for butcher shops to protect their workers from the moving parts of meat saws or grinders.

Severe violator exposes workers to multiple workplace injuries

Employers nationwide, including those here in Oklahoma, who willfully disregard the safety regulations of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration can be placed in the agency's Severe Violators Enforcement Program. OSHA recently inspected a roofing company in another state after receiving reports of conditions posing threats of workplace injuries. Inspectors found several repeat violations and decided to add this company to the SVEP program.

Recovery operations after storms can cause workplace injuries

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration expressed its concern for workers involved in cleanup operations after the recent storms in Oklahoma and other states. The agency warned that many hazards exist in recovery procedures, and required steps must be taken to ensure the safety of workers and volunteers alike. Dangers of workplace injuries can be minimized by safe practices and appropriate personal protective equipment.
