Defective Safety Equipment
Experienced Lawyers For Construction Safety Equipment Injuries in New York City
Construction Injuries Caused By Safety Belts & Safety Harness Failure
Certain jobs simply involve a degree of risk. For example, construction workers rely upon safety belts, safety harnesses, lifelines, and scaffold guard rails, planks, and understand the potential for injury every time they go to a job site. Factory workers and those who work in industrial settings face similar hazards. Proper safety equipment minimizes the risk of injury or death in any workplace.
Of course, the presence of safety equipment does not guarantee safety. Workers have to be properly trained to use the equipment. The equipment has to be in proper working order. In addition, the safety equipment cannot be altered or modified in an attempt to increase productivity. When companies cut corners on safety equipment, the workers are always the ones who pay the price.
