Dangers of Railroading

With the number of railroads that operate in the state of Louisiana, it is no surprise that many Louisiana residents work as railroad employees. One of the realities, however, is that railroad employees are at a higher risk of being injured than employees of other occupations due to the dangers of the job.

Other industries do put their employees at risk, however, because of the types of accidents that can occur in the railroad industry, railroad workers are at a higher risk of sustaining more serious injuries such as lost limbs and death.
