Who is Responsible for Construction Site Accidents?

building accident law firmThere are many parties who are responsible for ensuring that employees on construction sites have the safety equipment and tools that they need to do their jobs without getting injured.

Employers are not allowed to simply send their employees to a construction site without taking steps to promote safety.

Employers must:

  • Evaluate a site and identify potential dangers
  • Obtain safety equipment and harnesses to prevent accidents and falls
  • Create a strong safety plan
  • Train all employees on the proper way to use equipment to ensure safety.

Depending on the circumstances of cases, negligent employers, manufacturers of defective tools and equipment and poor safety standards can all contribute to creating conditions that are dangerous to construction workers. There are different legal mechanisms that Chicago construction site accident lawyers can use to help injured employees.
