Fall injuries in California workplaces

Many people are seriously injured or killed in workplace fall injuries every year. These injuries occur across industry types, with the highest number of fatalities coming from the construction industry. Health services, wholesale and retail workers together comprised the greatest number of nonfatal fall injuries while at work.

The 5 most common workplace injuries

California workers should know that career-ending injuries may happen in nearly any line of work. Accidents in the workplace may occur at even the most safety-conscious businesses, authorities say. The most common workplace accidents can cause back injuries, spine damage and debilitating pain in the joints. Although many on-the-job injuries are minor, some workers become financially crippled by their work-related injuries, suffering lost wages, costly hospital bills and the cost of rehabilitation and recovery.

Study: over 75% of all farming injuries unreported

A recently released joint study performed by researchers at the University of California (Davis) and Old Dominion University shows that the majority - 77 percent - of all on-the-job injuries suffered by agricultural workers are unreported. With no input about the "real" number of injuries, statistics relied upon by federal and state agencies aimed at gauging workplace safety could be grossly skewed.
