Practicing Safety on the Job

The Importance of Practicing Safety At Work

There are countless ways that a worker can suffer physical injury while on the job through numerous accidents or because of untimely circumstances. For this reason, laws have been passed giving employers the legal obligation to follow strict safety and health guidelines for the safety of all employees. Employers in Oakland and throughout California have a responsibility to provide a reasonably safe work environment that is free of unnecessary hazards, but despite these laws accidents at the workplace still happen on a regular basis.

Some of the most common accidents that occur at the workplace are electrocution injuries. This is the fifth leading cause of work-related injury deaths in the United States, and workers who work in close proximity to electrical sources are at high risk for these injuries. Some electrocution injuries are the result of equipment malfunction, which is the injury-causing incident that takes place most frequently in industrial and construction workplaces.

Equipment Malfunction Injuries in Oakland, CA

When an employer fails to properly train employees on current safety standards for equipment, it is only a matter of time before a worker suffers injuries caused by malfunctioning or defective equipment. Many of these injuries are easily avoidable with proper training and maintenance, but in some cases a third party may be responsible for a defective equipment part.

If you have suffered injury on the job from an equipment malfunction, don't hesitate to call an Oakland workers' compensation attorney from The Law Offices of Jonathan M. Brand.

An attorney from the firm can help you determine whether you have a case for a personal injury claim. The firm was founded in 1989 to provide quality legal help and representation for workers who are seeking workers' compensation after being injured on the job.

When you choose to work with a skilled lawyer from the firm, you will receive the legal guidance you need to file a workers' comp claim and receive the benefits you need in a timely manner.
