The manufacturing and construction industries are alive and well in North Texas and East Texas. Our region contains chemical and plastic manufacturing facilities, foundries, and mills of varying nature, requiring skilled labor, maintenance, and ongoing construction. According to the Texas Department of Insurance, Division of Workers’ Compensation, injuries in this sector exceed those of most other job classifications in Texas. According to the latest survey, the incident rate in the manufacturing industry is 3.3 injuries per 100 employees.
Industrial accidents are an all too common occurrence. Many times due to negligence on the employer’s part, by simply not following regulations and OSHA standards. Employers are responsible for providing proper workplace facilities, training, and equipment. When employers fail to meet their responsibilities, it can lead to catastrophic injuries.
The bottom line is that injuries do occur in the industrial setting, with risks present at greater rates than employment in general. Many accidents occur because of the lack of proper safety procedures at the facility. Strict adherence to lock out/tag out, Job Safety Analysis (JSA), and contractor regulations is imperative in ensuring a safe work place.
