Workplace injury leads to OSHA inspection of New Haven company

Employers in Bridgeport, Connecticut, should understand that a safety violation in the workplace may get them in trouble. Injuries at work raise suspicion about safety violations considerably and may lead to inspection of the site by concerned labor authorities.

Workplace accident victims can fairly claim compensation

Workplace accidents are not unusual in Bridgeport, Connecticut. Some of these accidents occur due to a violation of safety standards set forth by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. On a related point, an accident at work often occurs when the employer fails to provide reasonably safe working conditions and doesn't educate its workers about potential safety hazards.

Workers' benefit claims should be filed in a timely manner

Residents of Fairfield County may be aware of the consequences of claiming workers' compensation benefits too late. In the case of work-related illness or death, the victim or their dependents must request benefits within a stipulated period of time. Untimely filing may result in a rejection of the claim.

Construction site injuries are often fatal. Falling is a major factor contributing to construction worker injuries. Residential construction workers are particularly vulnerable to falls if training is inadequate and safety equipment isn't provided. On average, falls from residential structures result in around 40 worker fatalities each year. Restraining falls and preventing work injury is a big challenge.
