A construction site is inherently dangerous with heavy machines and heavy equipment. While working with heavy machinery it is important to use caution. Such machinery could include:
- Dump trucks
- Cement Loaders
- Large automated tools
All pose a danger to those working on a construction site.
Safety violations occur all too frequently at construction sites. If you see or hear about a safety violation do not hesitate to report it. You can do so with OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) at https://www.osha.gov/workers/file_complaint.html.
In California, if you are injured during working hours, you are entitled to compensation under the laws of Workers’ Compensation. If OSHA safety regulations were violated by any third party at your construction site, and this either caused or partly caused your injury, you may be entitled to pursue personal injury compensation as well as the benefits under the Workers’ Compensation laws. See https://www.justia.com/injury/workplace-accidents/construction-accidents. The Dominguez Firm handles both personal injury and Worker’s Compensation aspects of law for on-the-job injuries.
If OSHA regulations or safety rules were violated by anyone that was not directly working for your immediate employer, they may be held liable for any injuries and damages you sustain. Supervisors, employees, contractors, sub-contractors owe a duty of care to everyone in and around the construction site. If this duty is breached, the negligent party may be liable for your injuries.
There are many ways a negligent party may be held liable, including:
- Improper supervision or instruction
- Improper training of employees
- Asking an employee with insufficient training to do a task
- Disregarding the safety of others to make deadlines
- Welding near flammable materials
- Improper handling of chemicals
- Failure to secure an object before working it
- Using equipment in a way that puts others at risk
