Work Injury Lawyers can Help You Receive Compensation for your Injuries
OSHA sets the safety standard for industrial and commercial businesses. All employers are obligated to provide a safe work place for employees under the OSHA regulations. These regulations are specific for each industry and require that the work environment be free of chemical, physical, and mechanical hazards.
Employers are also required to ensure that employees receive adequate training to complete their work without fear of injury. This training should encompass safe work habits, proper use of personal protective equipment, actions to take in emergency situations, and technical training on job-related equipment.
Many work related accidents are due to employer negligence, resulting in serious injury and wrongful death to employees. Today, the risk of occupational disease is now the leading cause of work-related deaths.
Workers are subjected to hundreds of potential injuries. Often the causes of these injuries are due to faulty equipment, employer negligence, or physical stress from a demanding job. Examples of injuries or illnesses workers may suffer are listed below.
- Eye injuries
- Back strains and disc rupture
- Spinal injury and paralysis
- Head injury and broken bones
- Burns from heat sources
- Chemical burns and injuries
- Lung cancer
All of these injuries are preventable with the proper workplace precautions. Slips and falls are usually the result of poor housekeeping. Toxic exposure can be avoided with the use of proper protective equipment. Adequate training on practiced equipment can prevent amputations, eye and back injuries.
An injured employee may miss several days of work and require hospitalization, physical therapy, and other practiced medical attention. He or she may endure much pain and suffering, and be unable to complete personal care routines, or enjoy leisure activities.
