Understanding factors that lead to serious workplace accidents

For most individuals, the workplace is how we maintain a livable income. Whether this is through an office job, construction, mining or factory work, employees across the nation likely face known and unknown risks and dangers in any and all types of work environments. Even if a position does not have obvious risks, the unfortunate reality is that all workers could endure serious harms in the event of a workplace accident.

Unfortunately, these safety measures are not always taken or adequately applied, resulting in serious and fatal mining accidents.
