The Occupational Safety and Health Agency (OSHA) has requested public comments regarding how the construction and general industries can further protect workers from electric hazards, The Hill reported on October 30.
The request for public comments is a part of OSHA’s effort to review electrical safety standards in the construction industry and other occupations to make sure workers are protected from electric hazards. OSHA’s request for information has been published in the Federal Register. The public is given 60 days to send their responses.
Despite government efforts to ensure that every construction worker is protected from electrical hazards, there are still many employers and contractors who fall short when maintaining proper electric safety measures. If you believe the accident you have been involved in at a construction site in New York has been the result of a negligent employer, speak with an attorney at Hach & Rose, LLP, to learn if your situation qualifies you for a claim.
