Dealing with a workplace injury from a job-related accident can result in down-time and missing out on the everyday activities you normally enjoy. To prevent and minimize such accidents, OSHA provides detailed guidelines for employers regarding the safety of a work environment. Unfortunately, workplace injury is still common source of missed work and medical bills - hiring a workplace injury lawyer is critical to recuperating.
Shockingly, slip, trip and fall accidents cause 15% of all accidental deaths and come in second only to car accidents. There are standards for walking and working surfaces which apply to nearly all permanent places of employment. Below are a few common hazards and causes of workplace injury:
- Ice - Wetness - Grease - Polished floors - Loose flooring/carpeting - Uneven walking surfaces - Clutter - Electrical cords - Open drawers or cabinets - Damaged ladder steps
Employers may also be required to supply appropriate protective gear as well as training. Visit osha.gov to reference guidelines that may be relevant to your injuries.
