3 workers killed, 1 injured after construction scaffolding fall

Minnesota workers may be interested in the story of a fatal workplace accident that may have been caused by improper training or faulty equipment. Investigators from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration are looking into the matter, but the results of their inquiry may not be ready for months.

Worker death toll at oil refineries is largely unknown

Minnesota residents might be interested to learn about how many worker deaths take place at oil refineries. Although the Occupational Safety and Health Administration maintains records of all of the deaths and injuries that occur in various industries each year, many people don't know that a lot of oil workers are not classified under the 'petroleum refining" category. Therefore, determining how many fatal accidents take place at oil refineries is not always a straightforward task.

Q: What are employers' responsibilities in the workplace?

A: Minnesota residents interested in workplace safety issues may wish to know what responsibilities an employer has under the law regarding safety. Failure to adhere to these responsibilities could lead the employer to fines and other penalties as well as an unsafe workplace.

Lifting injuries for nurses could be prevented

Nurses in Minnesota might be more prone to injury than workers in many other industries. Although some people might think of an industry like construction as one where injuries are common, nurses have to lift and move patients regularly. This can lead to neck, shoulder and arm injuries.
