Employers are obligated to create a reasonably safe environment for their employees, and there are safety nets like worker’s compensation insurance in place for when injuries at work do occur. At the Benowitz Law Corporation, we believe that everyone deserves to go to work in a safe and hazard free environment, which is why we take workplace safety violation cases so seriously.
Generally speaking, a workplace safety violation is any preventable hazard that was not addressed in a timely and efficient manner. Should an employee injure themselves as a result of a safety violation, they have strong grounds for a legal case.
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), some of the most commonly violated workplace safety procedures include:
If you were injured at work as a result of a safety violation, or if the conditions you work in make you fearful of future injury, then contact an employment attorney right away. We can help to get your employer in line following safety regulations, and we can help to secure settlement for you following an injury. Do not let your employer’s negligent behavior lead to injury. Stand up to their unsafe practices with a dedicated legal team on your side.
