Temp Worker Injured at Stonewall Kitchen

A temporary worker from Rochester, N.H was injured on February 11, 2010 in an industrial accident at Stonewall Kitchen, in Maine. According to this article on www.seacoastline.com, the man received severe burns and lacerations to his left forearm and wrist when his arm was caught in the blade of a 150-gallon mixer.

The incident has been investigated and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration has been notified.

The article said that the man was on temporary assignment through Manpower Inc. of Dover, N.H.

A human resources director for Stonewall Kitchen said all workers go through training processes before working in the production environment.

Any worker who has sustained an injury arising out of and in the course of their employment has a potential workers’ compensation claim. The injury can occur while traveling on business, doing a work-related errand, attending a required business-related social function, or even while on a break or using restroom facilities and you are still legally covered by workers compensation. Some types of workers’ compensation injures include construction injuries, repetitive stress to a body part, and environmental hazards.

By law, it is required that every company in Pennsylvania carry Worker’s Compensation Insurance in the case an employee is injured on the job, becomes ill due to circumstances surrounding their job, or even if death results from their job.
