Injured on the Job in Zanesville
[ubermenu-map address=”Zanesville, OH” zoom=”14″]
Zanesville, Ohio sits near the border of Ohio and West Virginia in Muskingum County and was founded in 1797. The Zanesville population was 25,487 as of the 2010 census. Located along the banks of the Ohio River, Zanesville’s economy has been built around the manufacturing and farming industries.
With agriculture and manufacturing jobs supporting many of the families in Zanesville, many workers are regularly exposed to hazardous work environments. In March of 2010, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) cited Chipco LLC, a Zanesville natural gas well salvage and capping contractor, for multiple safety violations. OSHA determined that Chipco failed to provide adequate personal protective equipment for its workers.
“Far too many times, we encounter tragedies of this nature that very well might have been avoided if the employer would simply have followed OSHA safety and health standards,” said OSHA’s Deborah Zubaty.
