Workers at Colorado fracking site exposed to toxic gas

Within the last five years, the U.S. oil and gas industry has exploded. Much of the industry's prosperity is due to the implementation of hydraulic fracking, a controversial process through which natural gas and petroleum are mined from rocks and sand deep beneath the ground. There are, however, many environmental, health and safety concerns related to the fracking process.

Why is the construction industry so dangerous?

Due to the nature of the work that must be completed, the construction industry is inherently dangerous. Men and women who work at construction sites are routinely exposed to hazardous working conditions that put them at risk of suffering injuries related to falls, machinery and structural collapses.

Workplace safety: Occupational Safety and Health Act

Every day in countries around the world, children labor long hours and workers are exposed to toxic materials and dangerous working conditions. Workplace safety and workers' rights remain severely deficient in many parts of the world. Thankfully, the United States has some of the strictest regulations and laws that help provide for the equitable pay and treatment of U.S. workers and impose regulations on businesses related to workplace safety and health issues.
