Injuries from Unsafe Working Conditions
Dangerous and unsafe working conditions pose a risk to construction workers and the general public. Each year workers suffer serious personal injury or wrongful death due to unsafe conditions at the workplace.
While unsafe work conditions can exist with respect to almost every type of occupation, occupations such as factory worker, construction worker, and occupations requiring manual labor and heavy equipment experience the highest rate of injuries and death. Workers in some of these industries, such as factory and construction work, are surrounded by a high degree of risk from potentially dangerous equipment. Because of the high degree of danger posed in these situations, it is important that companies use safe equipment, ensure that there are safeguards to the greatest extent possible, and thoroughly train employees on how to operate the equipment and otherwise perform work in a safe manner.
Dangerous Work Environment
Injuries resulting from a dangerous work place include:
Unsafe working conditions can also lead to death. Tragically, when death occurs, the effect of the loss of a loved one can be devastating for the loved ones left behind.
In the case of a worker injured during the course of employment, the worker will likely be entitled to workers’ compensation from the worker’s employer. Additionally, if the injury was caused by a person or entity other than the employer, such as a contractor or maker of defective equipment, the worker may be additionally entitled to recover from such other person or entity.
