California Workers Compensation Lawyers Representing Victims in Glendale
The city of Glendale in Los Angeles County is home to well over 200,000 residents and is the third largest city in the county. Glendale is proud to have been named the city’s neighborhood of the year by both the editors and readers of Curbed.com in 2013. The area boasts close to 50 public parks and with its Mediterranean climate, the temperature is always balmy and warm.
A Community of Hard Working Employees
Apart from Nestle and Dreamworks Animation, a number of employees work to directly serve the local economy including:
- The City of Glendale (over 2000 employees)
- The Glendale Unified School District (close to 2000 employees)
- Glendale Community College (close to 1500 employees)
- Glenair Inc (over 1000 employees)
The Glendale Adventist Medical Center and Glendale Memorial Medical Center are also leading employers, supplying close to 4000 jobs to the people of Glendale and from other nearby communities.
Hospitals Are a Hazardous Place to Work
Hospitals may be a safe haven where people go for health services, but for those working in them, they can be hazardous. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, American hospitals recorded 6.8 work-related illnesses and injuries for every 100 full-time employees in 2011.
Shockingly hospitals had even more workplace injuries than the construction industry and significantly more than the manufacturing industry. There were over 250,000 injuries and illnesses in hospitals in 2011 and nearly 59,000 which forced hospital employees to miss time from work.
