Likelihood of a workplace accident increases with fatigue

Hazards exist in varying degrees at any job site.

Hazardous conditions may be present at any job site. For those whose work takes them out on the streets and highways of British Columbia, however, there is an extra element of danger present at all times.

Sometimes the wheels of justice turn slowly, especially when multiple parties are involved and investigations need to be conducted. When the incident in question involves a workplace injury, facts have to be gathered by both sides, and the resulting documents can be very long. A case currently before the courts involving a company from British Columbia illustrates the time required for justice to be served.
