The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is a federal agency that regulates workplace safety. When a worker is hurt on the job and an OSHA violation exists, this failure to meet an OSHA standard can serve as compelling evidence for a personal injury claim.
In an OSHA Workplace personal injury lawsuit, the worker must show that their employee or other party acted negligently or failed to take reasonable steps to ensure worker safety. Your employer has certain requirements that they must follow in order to be OSHA compliant. This requirements list varies by industry, however in general your employer must:
- Provide employees notification of their rights under OSHA,
- Maintain a safe workplace
- Comply with all OSHA standards
- Notify employees of hazards in the workplace
- Train employees on OSHA rules and on how to stay safe
- Provide employees with reports of OSHA inspections upon request.
- Not surprisingly, violations of OSHA standards tend to carry significant weight in a courtroom and may lead to a positive verdict in a workplace personal injury case.
