Animals have an irreplaceable role by our sides. Domesticated pets are a big part of how young people learn to value life and adults' network of stress-relieving companions. So when poor training or an aggressive disposition make an animal dangerous to us, it is often unexpected and difficult to get past.
Everyone has an expectation of being safe in their workplace, regardless of where they are working. This means whether they are in the office space owned by a multinational company or on the road as part of a construction crew, employers are responsible for ensuring their employees are in a safe working environment.

While driving down California roads in the summer, motorists may commonly come across signs that ask for drivers to slow down their driving speed as they are entering a work zone. Unfortunately, when they don't adhere to those signs, work zone crashes take place and people end up injured, or even worse, dead.
Safety on the road is never a given. Drivers must always take the time to survey the roads and areas around them for possible hazards that may cause collisions. Unfortunately, it often doesn't take a lot for a collision to cause injury, disability or even death.
Many workers who find themselves injured in a workplace accident often end up going to the hospital to get treatment for their injuries. And, this often requires an extended hospital stay. A hospital stay means medical bills and when one is taking time off from work, more bills is the last thing needed. This is where workers' compensation plays an important role, as it ensures workers are compensated for the injuries they have suffered and the treatment they receive.
California is the most populous state in the nation for humans and dogs alike. The huge majority of canine friends are safe around people, and bad experiences between people and dogs are very rare. This is partially why dogs are the most popular pet here.
