Industrial accidents are a leading cause of injury and death in the workplace, and recent statistics have shown that mechanical equipment is involved in 80 percent of workplace fatalities. The more dangerous your workplace, the more important it is for your employer to emphasize workplace safety.

Employers have a responsibility to maintain equipment in proper working order and to provide a safe working condition for employees in order to limit injuries. If you have been injured by heavy machinery or equipment while on the job, you may be able to file an additional claim. Remember, timing is important to preserve evidence and your claim, so the sooner you contact an experienced workplace safety lawyer, the sooner you can take action to protect your rights.

OSHA Guidelines and Workplace Safety

All employers must comply with OSHA workplace safety guidelines. OSHA, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, enforces these regulations in order to protect workers and minimize injuries on the job. If you employer is not abiding by OSHA regulations, then you are working in an unsafe environment.
