Work-Related Deaths Archives

The Illinois construction industry can be deadly to workers

Like other industries in the Chicago area, construction work can be dangerous. In fact, OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) refers to construction as a "high hazard industry." Each year, in Illinois and nationwide, many construction workers suffer serious injury and some are even lost to work-related death in the field of construction.

When you've lost someone you love to a work-related death

It is safe to assume that Chicago would not be the city it is without its industrial industry. All of us rely on the industrial sector's contributions to the success of our city. While most of us cannot imagine the horror of losing a loved one in an industrial accident, we know these tragic incidents do occur all too often.

Workers can be exposed to toxic substances

Even though progress has been made in removing toxins such as lead, asbestos and DDT from certain products, new chemicals and artificial ingredients have made their way into everyday consumer products and building materials. Sometimes toxic materials get into the water and air, where we can't avoid them.
