Workplace Safety Attorneys in Houston
Fighting Against Unsafe Workplaces in Fort Bend and Harris Counties
If your employer fails to adhere to the Texas fundamental safety requirements, you have a right to file a lawsuit to compel them to address the safety concerns. You can file a lawsuit immediately after a work-related accident or as a precautionary measure.
What Does Workplace Safety Mean?
The federal law requires all private-sector employers to furnish a safe workplace that is free of recognized hazards to their employers. This means that every private establishment must comply with occupational safety and health standards adopted by the Department of Labor.
Your workplace cannot be 100% secure. However, your employer must ensure that all reasonable workplace safety measures are put in place. Such measures also don’t guarantee a danger-free work environment.
To ensure you are in a safe working environment, always be on the lookout for anything that compromises workplace safety and raise it with your employer. If no action is taken, you have the right to escalate the matter to have it handled by a court of law.
You have to observe some level of care at the workplace as well. In most cases, employers anchor their defense on the ignorance or recklessness of their employees. That tells you that you must always be conversant with all the workplace safety tips to avoid falling victim to workplace injury.
