Fatal accident spurs new safety devices for Metro-North

No kind of workplace can be made 100 percent safe from accidents, but Connecticut and federal laws require employers to take reasonable steps to protect workers from safety hazards. When a simple and affordable device can make a big difference in protecting workers from a serious accident at work, employers should use the device.

Connecticut and federal laws require employers to provide their employees with a safe workplace. Workers should tell their employers about any safety hazards they find on the job, but when the employer refuses to correct the problem, workers can file a complaint with Connecticut's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (CONN-OSHA) or the U.S. OSHA.

Court: Family must use workers' compensation over fatal accident

When Connecticut workers are hurt or killed on the job, they or their families are entitled to benefits through the workers' compensation system. In fact, lawmakers intended for the workers' compensation system to take the place of personal injury lawsuits by injured workers against their employers. Therefore workers or their families who collect workers' compensation benefits generally cannot also sue the employer over the same injury.
