The Importance of Safety Training
On a construction site there are many dangers that can compromise the well-being of workers. Due to the dangerous nature of construction sites, employers are responsible for ensuring that their team is up-to-date on all safety training and work site information. When this responsibility is overlooked, the potential for a worker sustaining an injury greatly increases.
At Hach & Rose, LLP, we understand how frustrating it may be to experience an injury because of the negligent actions of your employer. If your employer failed to offer appropriate training at your construction site and you were subsequently injured, our New York employer negligence lawyers are available to help. Contact our team at 866-LAWS-USA to discuss your options with a knowledgeable attorney today.
The Risks of Inadequate Training
Proper use of equipment, tools, and general safety information is critical on a construction site. When a person is unsure how to work safely in this type of environment, they may put themselves and others in danger. Inadequate training can lead to:
- Improper use of machinery
- Unfamiliarity with emergency evacuation routes
- Failure to use safety equipment
- Inability to recognize warning signs
Construction injuries caused by these and other factors may take weeks or months to recover from. During this time, it may be difficult to pay for the costs of medical treatment if you are also unable to work. By retaining the services of a lawyer, though, you may be able to find some kind of support for these financial demands.
