Common Safety Violations in Cases Our Tulsa Employment Law Attorneys Represent
The Oklahoma Department of Labor (ODOL) provides a poster that employers are required to hang in the workplace. It informs employees of their rights in regard to safety on the job and details the responsibilities employers have in protecting them.
Unfortunately, safety violations are rampant. They occur in a broad range of fields, including construction, farming, manufacturing, public safety, and the service industry. When these put your health in danger, BDIW Law provides the legal protection you need. Common types of safety violations in cases our Tulsa, OK employment attorneys represent include:
- Failure to inform employees of safety hazards;
- Failure to provide the appropriate safety equipment;
- Lack of proper training in performing potentially dangerous tasks;
- Lack of proper maintenance of tools and machinery;
- Lack of routine safety inspections
- Lack of procedures to encourage employees to report violations.
Your Rights When Filing a Claim Over Safety Violations on the Job
Lack of protection when working with dangerous substances, lack of proper support or safety guards for dangerous equipment, and failure to properly maintain the workplace and prevent hazards are all examples of common safety hazards. When you suffer serious injuries as a result, BDIW Law can help you file a claim.
As experienced Tulsa, OK employment attorneys, we can also protect you when an employer attempts to retaliate against you for reporting hazards and safety violations.
Under the Oklahoma Statutes, employers cannot fire, demote, or otherwise harass their employees for reporting safety violations, requesting an inspection, or for filing a claim. They can face civil or even criminal charges if they do. They can also be required to reinstate you at your job, pay you any money owed, and provide additional compensation for pain, suffering, inconvenience, or other losses you suffered as a result.
