Under federal and state laws in Riverside and across California, every employer, contractor, and property manager at construction sites are required to provide workers with safe conditions to prevent injuries in the workplace. You can hold your construction employers liable for your injuries if your construction accident attorney can prove that your employer failed to:
- Get rid of potential hazards from the workplace (construction site)
- Properly inspect the site to detect potential hazards (this must be done on a daily basis)
- Provide workers with safe and non-defective equipment and tools
- Provide employees with injury prevention training at construction sites (and warn them if some elements of the construction site pose any risks)
These are the regulations by the U.S. Department of Labor Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA).
