Attorneys handling Workplace Injuries in Abilene. Many employers fail to offer even minimal safety measures leading to unnecessary injuries and deaths. The State of Texas requires that all employers provide their employees with a safe working environment. Still, employees do continue to be injured or killed. In fact, according to the US Department of Labor, thousands of employees across our nation are wounded at work every day with some of the injuries leading to death.
It is incumbent upon the employer to have adequate safety policies and procedures in place followed by thorough training to provide for a safe employee environment. Employers must provide a safe location for employees to work in and provide their employees with safe, adequate equipment and tools sufficient for completing their jobs without personal harm. Periodic inspections of all safety measures should be conducted to assure employee safety further. OSHA (Occupational Health and Safety Administration) has set forth numerous guidelines on a national level to help business owners and employers to keep the workplace a safe area for workers to perform their duties. Sadly, employers may not hold up their obligations to provide workers with proper training, personal protective equipment, or a safe work environment. When a workplace accident happens, as an employee, you need a professional attorney with experience who can help you navigate the legal waters.
