Improper Safety Equipment

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), employers have a responsibility to provide a safe workplace. Some key employer responsibilities include:

  • Providing a workplace free from serious hazards and compliance with the standards, rules and regulations issued by OSHA
  • Making sure employees have access to and use safe equipment and tools
  • Using signage to indicate potential hazards
  • Establishing and communicating operating procedures and protocols to all the workers
  • Providing safety training to employees

 

When employees are not provided with adequate safety equipment, their likelihood of sustaining an injury is significantly higher. If you are injured due to any of the following reasons, please contact us today:
