Can Every Work-Related Injury Be Turned Into Workers’ Comp?
Most work-related injuries that occur on a construction site can be turned into the Workers’ Comp Board for review. Your Workers’ Compensation attorney will be able to tell you if you have a valid claim.
How Do I Make Sure My Workplace Is Safe?
If you have questions about a safety issue, your first step is to go to your supervisor. If nothing is done to address your concerns, your next step is to go to OSHA and file a report. This ensures that your construction site is brought up to code in terms of safety and other state and federal codes.
What Happens When OSHA Inspects a Construction Site?
When OSHA performs a safety inspection at a construction site, the inspector will go over any areas of concern that have been brought to the organization’s attention. They will also go over every area where violations have been reported in the past. They will do a walk-through of the entire site to determine that everything meets or exceeds OSHA’s strict safety standards.
Who Is in Charge of Keeping the Construction Site Safe?
Your company’s safety supervisor is in charge of keeping the construction site safe. However, every person who works at the site bears some responsibility for the safety of their workplace, including you.
