Truck drivers face many dangers on the job, even when they are not actually traveling on the road at the time that an incident occurs. Accidents are always a possibility both inside and outside of the truck. Recently, one Illinois truck driver learned this the hard way when he suffered a work-related injury after falling from his truck during a stop in a nearby state.
Typically, industrial workers are at the greatest risk of falling victim to toxic exposure or some other work-related injury. Unlike an instantaneous accident, workers may not feel the dangerous effects of some chemicals until they are exposed to them over an extended period of time. As a recent incident in Illinois proves, there is a risk of toxic exposure in almost any type of workplace.
