California Workers Compensation Lawyers Representing Victims in Altadena
Located 14 miles from the heart of downtown Los Angeles, Altadena is an unincorporated and census designated place in Los Angeles County, California. Altadena was named as such by Byron O. Clark who established a nursery in the surrounding foothills which was named the “Altadena Nursery”.
It was not until the 1860s when Benjamin Eaton developed water sources to support his vineyard located near the edge of Eaton Canyon when the the areas which would become known as Altadena, Pasadena and South Pasadena began to develop. Millionaires from the east learned about this building opportunity and many built mansions along Mariposa Street, a road which would eventually become known as Millionaire’s Row.
As of the 2010 census the population of Altadena has continued to hover around nearly 43,000 residents with 42,777 inhabitants claiming this area as home. The economy was originally driven by agriculture, but today the majority of residents work in managerial and professional-related occupations, service occupations, and in other office occupations.
Top Five Safety Hazards in the Office
An office may seem like a risk-free environment, but the truth is that any workplace comes with its own set of health risks and safety hazards.
Some of the most common risks in the workplace include:
- Falls (due to tripping or slipping)
- Straining and overexertion (due to lifting and carrying heavy or awkward objects)
- Being struck by objects (often due to doors being opened or closed too carelessly)
- Being trapped and pinched (often due to closing doors and drawers)
- Ergonomic-related injuries (such as musculoskeletal issues and RSI)
