Death is inevitable. Depending on the manner of death, family members of the deceased may be able to accept their loss. However, death due to someone else's negligence, makes the situation worse for the surviving family members and relatives, especially if the person who died was the main source of income in the household. Workers' compensation benefits can provide relief for the financially injured family if the person was killed at work. Still, these benefits may not be enough to cover all damages, leaving families to deal with financial difficulties.
Workers are aware that their workplaces, depending on the industry they are in, pose a certain amount of risk to their safety. This is the main reason why employers have to do their part to ensure the safety of their employees by providing security and a healthy working environment.
