How To Get Compensation After An Industrial Accident
Industrial work sites are full of hazards. Heavy equipment and powerful tools pose a constant danger. Extreme heat and toxic substances are also concerns.
Employers and supervisors at these work sites have a responsibility to make safety a priority. This means conducting training, enforcing safety protocols, providing protective gear and taking other measures to reduce the risk of accidents. Employers and workers alike must take care to follow federal health and safety regulations.
Nonetheless, accidents still happen. Workers can end up suffering serious or fatal injuries from:
- Exposure to toxic chemicals
- Forklift accidents
- Machinery accidents
- Electrical shocks
