Summer is an exciting time for people all across Ohio, particularly children. School is out, vacations are on the horizon and there is plenty of time to spend outside. However, people of all ages need to remember that there are some risks that come with summer that can lead to serious accidents and injuries.
Workplace accidents and injuries are simply a fact of life on construction sites, in factories, on roadwork crews and in a number of work environments. Some companies simply have demonstrated safety records that underscore a lack of focus on or even due care concerning dangerous conditions or safety violations. Others admittedly do work very hard to increase workplace safety, but, notwithstanding their efforts, no work environment can ever be made totally free of risk and injury.
