Columbus is the state capital of Ohio and lies directly in the center of the state, almost equal distance from Cleveland in the northeast and Cincinnati in southwestern Ohio. The Columbus metropolitan area includes several counties, including Franklin, Delaware and Fairfield. Columbus was founded in 1812 and named after Christopher Columbus.
Some Fortune 500 companies operate their headquarters out of Columbus, including Nationwide Mutual Insurance, American Electric Power, L Brands and Big Lots. Other than these major employers, central Ohio is home to many shipping and manufacturing facilities. Both UPS and FedEx have shipping hubs in Columbus that each employ thousands of laborers.
There are many belts, machines and moving parts in these facilities and shipping hubs, and thousands of workers in Columbus are at risk of workplace accidents on a daily basis. The majority of these employers strive to provide a safe working environment and comply with federal regulations from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)—but accidents are bound to happen.
