EXAMPLES OF UNSAFE WORK PRACTICES

Employers have an obligation to ensure that their employees are protected from foreseeable harm in their working environments. Unfortunately, employers may avoid repairing dangerous conditions, or have a lack of supervision and training that may result in workplace accidents.

At some jobs, the workplace risks are obvious. Construction sites are filled with hazards, such as power tools, scaffolding, ladders, and heavy equipment. Here are a few examples of unsafe working conditions:

  • Slippery/ debris littered floors
  • Dangerous stairways
  • Forklift accidents
  • Poorly maintained equipment
  • Using tools for something other than its intended use
  • Trailing extension cords
  • Large obstacles blocking exits or  left in the path of workers
  • Failure to secure dangerous substances
  • Not providing the appropriate PPE (eye protection, safety masks, harnesses, hard hats, etc.)
  • Falling objects
  • Poor lighting
  • Providing poorly modified equipment to workers
  • Unsecured openings
  • Improperly secured machinery
  • Invisible hazards
    • Asbestos
    • Benzene

However, workplace risks might not be as obvious in other professions. Our New Jersey work injury attorneys have experience winning cases for clients with both obvious workplace injuries and less common ones as well.
