The Occupational and Safety Health Administration, or OSHA, is a department of the Federal government that regulates workplace safety and health practices across the country. The purpose of OSHA is to ensure the safety of workers and protect everyone from injury. Although OSHA regulations are important in every workplace, they are especially critical on construction sites, where a single mistake or violation can lead to catastrophic injury and death. Some of the most common OSHA violations include exposure to toxic chemicals, failure to use protective equipment, failure to repair vehicles not in compliance, and a general lack of security features on scaffolds, walkways and ladders. Any one of these OSHA violations can be disastrous. Litigating suits that involve OSHA violations requires a deep understanding of proper protocols and ability to sort out the complex liability , which is why you need competent attorneys helping you on your case.
