When New Yorkers go to work, they expect to do their jobs. Individuals don’t expect that they will encounter a lot of obstacles in trying to get their job done correctly. In fact, most employers do everything they can to ensure that the job gets done in a timely and cost-efficient manner. However, in meeting these goals, employers can choose to ignore workplace safety laws.
These regulations are in place in order to help New York workers remain safe in the workplace. Whether it is rules about personal safety equipment or working conditions, it is important that these rules are followed. Workers and their employers deserve a safe working environment free from the risk of unnecessary injuries.
Despite federal and state workplace safety regulations, many employers in New York fail to properly enforce and uphold these laws. Many workers go to work in unsafe environments where they are exposed to risky conditions. In some situations, a workplace accident can occur leaving the individual seriously injured.
