Santa Clara's Great America Fined For Worker's Injury

California's Great America theme park in Santa Clara has been cited $70,200 for its role in creating a dangerous environment which led to a worker suffering serious personal injuries.  The amusement park accident occurred this past summer.  The ride mechanic, a 66-year-old man, was working at the Flight Deck Ride when he was struck by a train as he was retrieving a cell phone from a restricted area.   According to the investigation the amusement park's owner - Cedar Fair Southwest - failed to have proper safety measures in place.  This included the failure to ensure proper safety protocols existed to make sure that the roller coaster was not in operation when workers retrieved lost articles, and also to make sure that workers were trained to shut down the rides.

California Company Cited In Electrocution Accident

Cal/OSHA has cited a well water services company from Santa Maria for its role in causing an electrocution incident that killed one worker and seriously injured another. The accident occurred when a pump hoist came in contact with an energized overhead power line.  

Workers' Compensation Carriers Continue to Inject Unnecessary Costs Into the System

California workers' compensation carriers' policies routinely lead to the knee jerk denial and delay or care prescribed by physicians from within their own network or doctors. The result? Unnecessary costs are added to the system and injured workers don't get the care they need.
