The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) exists to help protect workers by setting strict safety standards for their employers. Although some work environments are inherently more dangerous than others, like industrial facilities, construction sites, and factories, upholding these standards can help reduce the risk of catastrophic injury when properly implemented.
When these safety standards are not up to par, serious injury or death can result. Hundreds of employees sustain preventable on-the-job injuries every year. If you or a loved one has been hurt in a workplace accident, you may be able to claim compensation to cover medical expenses, funeral expenses, pain and suffering, and more.
OSHA has identified a list of some of the most common workplace safety violations:
Serious injury can occur when employers do not take the necessary precautions to ensure the safety of their workers. For example, a poorly designed or maintained electrical system can have the potential to cause electrocution or burns, or a broken ladder may create a risk for a fall.
