It's hard to predict when and why work accidents happen, but there are safety regulations and rules in place to make things as safe as reasonably possible.

Workers' compensation for heat-related illnesses

Workers will also find it useful to understand the workers' compensation process in case they need to file a claim due to heat-related illnesses.

Fatal crane accident and workers' compensation death benefits
