Construction firm owners, however, have the responsibility to provide a safe work environment for construction workers. To do this, they have to let their employees undergo training and educational courses on safety hazards to be conducted by representatives from the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA).
Unfortunately, not all employers realize the importance of educating their employees on workplace safety. With insufficient knowledge on safety, workers become prone to accidents and injuries. If workers are harmed on-site due to their employer’s disregard of education and safety courses, or failure to provide safety equipment, they can seek the help of a qualified Bronx personal injury attorney to uphold their right to compensation.
