Preliminary data on workplace fatalities in Minnesota

Minnesota residents who work in dangerous jobs are constantly aware of their risk of being involved in workplace accidents. They also know that an on-the-job accident can result in a fatality. Employees and family members who live with this reality must pay special attention to laws governing workplace safety. When an unsafe working environment is noted, the dangers increase.

Man remembered after death on construction site

Construction site accidents are not unusual but that does not negate the depth of the impact that they can have on people in Minnesota. For victims who survive, recovering from their injuries alone can take a long time and be costly. After a fatal accident on a construction site, many people are left to grieve and figure out how to move on. This includes friends, family members and co-workers.

How does the Fair Labor Standards Act help the workplace?

In the past, unregulated work environments have been the cause of a lot of unfair workplace situations and nationwide issues. Because of people being overworked and underpaid, a number of new laws and regulations had to be developed in order to maintain more balance.

Lack of safety harness use an issue with contractor

Construction workers in Minnesota face some of the most dangerous working conditions possible. Every day, they literally put their lives at risk to perform their job duties. It is no surprise that the construction industry is known to have a relatively high rate of workplace accidents compared to some other industries. Falls from scaffolding, a ladder fall, a forklift accident or some other machinery accident can all leave a construction worker suffering from serious injuries. Many accidents are even more tragic and result in fatalities.
