Workplace accidents: Woman injured at meat packing company

On behalf of Godwin and Rubin posted in Workplace Accidents on Monday, August 14, 2017.

Many businesses in California and across the country must adhere to national safety standards. Employees report to their jobs each day, expecting a safe working environment. Unfortunately, even with safety procedures and protocols in place, workplace accidents can occur. A woman was recently injured in another state at an industrial facility.

Initial reports showed that a man’s arm had been stuck in an escalator around 8:30 p.m. one evening. However, it was later confirmed that a female worker’s arm had gotten stuck in a conveyor belt at a meat packing company. A spokesperson stated that it took about an hour to extricate the woman’s arm from the conveyor belt. The woman was transported to the hospital with injuries to her arm that were not life-threatening.

Past records show that several calls had been made to the meat packing plant over the last five years. However, the most recent call was the only one that involved an accident. The database from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration did not show a record of any prior accidents with injury at the facility. OSHA had not yet confirmed if the recent incident was under investigation or if it had been reported.

Injuries resulting from workplace accidents can range from minor to serious. Anyone who has suffered an injury on the job in California should consult a workers’ compensation attorney. A knowledgeable lawyer can help evaluate the situation and recommend how best to proceed. An experienced attorney will work with clients to help them receive all the benefits to which they are entitled.
