If you or a family member have been injured in an unsafe workplace or are concerned about unsafe working conditions, you should have the help of a work injury lawyer who can help protect your right to a safe work environment.

What Are Employers Required to Do to Keep Workers Safe?

Per the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA), federal safety standards are in place to protect employees from hazards in the workplace.  Your employer is expected to do the following:

  • Meet minimum safety standards applicable to each industry, whether construction, maritime, or general industry workplaces
  • Ensure machinery and equipment are safe to use
  • Provide personal protective equipment
  • Provide all required safety equipment specific to the industry of work
  • Ensure workplace safety and training is provided to employees in a language each can understand

What Can I Do if I Suspect an Unsafe Workplace?

If you suspect that your illness or injury was due to your employer putting profits over safety or that there was some other lapse in the protocols needed to keep workers safe then you should be aware that OSHA and state guideline give workers the right to:

  • See the results of previous tests for workplace hazards 
  • See records of previous injuries and illnesses in your workplace
  • Request an OSHA inspection

You also have the right to ask for the above and to report a workplace injury without retaliation from your employer. To report an unsafe workplace, go to osha.gov.
