Unsafe Working Environment

The Perecman Firm has recovered more than half a billion dollars for injury victims.

Failure to Provide Safety for Employees in the Workplace

While certain jobs are more inherently dangerous than others, employers are always required to make a workplace as safe as possible. When employers fail to do so, it can result in an increased risk of serious injury and illness for workers. David Perecman, leading attorney at our firm, is on the forefront of fighting for construction and other industry work-site safety. As a New York City workers’ compensation lawyer, he has more than 40+ years of successful experience in the field.

If you have been injured at work due to an employer’s failure to provide safety, reach out to The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C. at (212) 577-9325.

Enforcing OSHA Guidelines

The United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has set out guidelines for employers to follow in regards to workplace safety. These guidelines and regulations are designed to reduce the risk of injury, illness, or death for employees.

For example, OSHA requires all employers to:

  • Maintain a hazard-free workplace
  • Fix or remedy any hazards they should know about
  • Provide tools and machinery that are in safe working condition
  • Follow certain record-keeping requirements
  • Adhere to posting requirements to ensure workers know their rights

Common examples of hazards can include anything from dangerous chemicals or materials to broken or damaged equipment. If employers fail to stay on top of these issues, they could be in violation of certain OSHA guidelines. While workers’ compensation cases do not require any act of negligence in order for an employee to recover benefits, it is important to understand your rights, how to identify lack of safety in the workplace, and how to respond if an accident does occur. Above all else, remember that your employer has a duty to keep you safe, whether in the office or at the demolition site.
