Workers' compensation provides survivor benefits

When working for an employer, one can expect that the company will place employee safety first. Keeping in mind that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration is also placing employee and workplace safety first, most can expect a workplace or job site that demands safety and follows safety guidelines and best practices. When an employer knowingly defies laws that are in place to keep its workers safe, the Pennsylvania workers' compensation program is in place to help those injured, or their surviving family members in the event of a fatality, financially when loss of income results from a workplace injury.
