Still significant safety concerns for meat processing workers

Meat processing is a serious and sometimes difficult job. It can also a be a dangerous occupation, because it involves heavy machinery and sharp blades along with chemicals and other hazards. Without the proper safety protocols, it can be surprisingly easy to get hurt. Even those who are very careful can still become injured simply because the job itself can be difficult and challenging at times.

Falls a danger in many work environments

Falls in occupational settings are a significant hazard. Falls may occur simply by an employee walking and stumbling, or a fall may take place when the worker is trying to accomplish a task like changing a light fixture using a ladder. Still other falls may wind up in fatalities, such as when an ironworker falls 80 feet to the ground from a scaffolding platform.
