You Deserve Financial Protection for Doing Difficult, Dangerous Work
Structural iron and steel work is one of the top 10 most dangerous jobs in the country, according to a December 2016 report from the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics.
This kind of work employed more than 69,000 people – more than 1,100 of them in Kentucky – that year, the bureau said.
Iron and steel work involves many risks for getting injured on the job:
- Brain injuries – Steel workers face the risk of suffering blows to the head from falling objects or from falling themselves, causing traumatic brain injuries.
- Burns – When welding is taking place on your work site and sparks are flying, you face a hazard from burns.
- Cuts – If you’re working with sharp metal edges and tools, you could experience a serious cut.
- Falls – Construction jobs where you’re working high above the ground come with the serious hazard of falling and suffering many kinds of injuries as a result.
- Muscle injuries – Many ironworkers and steelworkers have to lift heavy loads, creating the risk for several kinds of muscle and joint injuries.
Your workplace should provide safety training and equipment such as hardhats, goggles, face shields, steel-toe boots and fall-prevention systems.
But injuries still happen. And if you worked in the steel industry, we’re determined to make sure your case isn’t ignored.

But you can’t work because you were hurt on the job. You’re worried about paying for your health care and housing and putting food on the table.
You worked hard in the steel industry and you deserve better.
