OSHA Violations

OSHA Violations & Workplace Injuries

Many work environments pose great risks to employees. For this reason, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, often referred to as OSHA, has designed strict safety and health standards to protect employees in their various work zones. Unfortunately, this does not always stop fatalities and injuries from occurring.

While many places enforce OSHA standards, many other workplaces would not meet these OSHA standards if a representative were to visit the establishment. As a result, these dangerous workplaces and unhealthy environments increase the potential of injured or deceased employees. In fact, OSHA reported that in 2013, 4,585 employees were killed on the job.

If you have suffered an injury or the loss of a loved one in a preventable workplace accident, you may be able to obtain compensation to cover medical expenses, emotional distresses, and more.

Common OSHA Violations

According to OSHA, there are four common workplace accidents which cause deaths every year. These are often referred to as the “Fatal Four.” These include the following: fall accidents, electrocution accidents, struck by an object accidents, and caught-in or caught-between accidents. Unfortunately, many of these injuries and deaths were preventable if the appropriate OSHA standards were met. Some other common workplace safety violations include:

  • Improper fall protection
  • Improper or lack of respiratory protection
  • Improper or exposed electrical wiring and system designs
  • Lack of or improper machine guarding
  • Unstable ladders

While some injuries caused by OSHA violations are not always severe, many of the unsafe conditions can lead to severe injuries and death. For this reason, it is important that employers and corporations protect their employees by making sure OSHA standards are met in every area of the workplace at all times.
