Can you prevent getting hurt at work with proper self-care?

Depending on the industry you work in, you are subject to unique risks tied to the job responsibilities you are assigned each day. If you work in an especially dangerous industry in California, chances are your employer has gone to extensive lengths to put parameters in place to protect you and your cohorts. However, you can also reduce your risk of getting injured simply by taking good care of yourself and making sure you are fully prepared for work each day.

Yet what if you were to be injured at work and then later were told that your company does not offer workers' compensation benefits? Like most, you assume that the law requires all employers to carry such coverage. Yet many employers may claim that their unique business structure does not require them to follow the law. Given the complexity of employment law, yours might be relying on you to simply take its word on it and not press the issue.
