Mining workers face fire hazards on the job

Workers in Arizona may have serious concerns about fire safety, especially if they work in the mining industry. Underground tunnels can be particularly dangerous places for workplace fires because toxic gases and flammable heavy equipment may be involved. Ventilation systems underground may be limited, and there may be few safe escape routes in case of an underground fire, while a greater risk of explosions may provide an additional threat. Employers have a responsibility to adhere to federal OSHA workplace safety regulations to provide a safer environment for employees working in these conditions.

How to mitigate workplace hazards

A report from Work to Zero concluded that employers may not be doing enough to protect their workers from workplace hazards. According to the report's authors, workplace fatalities are going up despite the fact that workplace injury rates are declining. The report listed several ways that companies can help to mitigate hazards and minimize the chance that an individual will be hurt or killed while on the job.

Supervisor, worker participation crucial to construction safety

Arizona residents who work in the construction industry should know about a report from Dodge Data & Analytics, which shows how contractors are focusing more on having supervisors lead the way in safety and trying to increase worker participation. Eighty-four percent of the contractors surveyed said that involving job site workers was crucial to safety, and 83% said the same for supervisors with strong leadership skills.
