Experienced Bronx Attorney Offers 4 Tips for a Safer Workplace, Bronx, New York

Millions of Americans are injured on the job every year, resulting in missed work, lost wages, and expensive medical treatment. While a skilled workers' compensation attorney can help you get the benefits you deserve, it's better to avoid these accidents in the first place. Fortunately, most workplace injuries can be prevented by taking the time to ensure that your working environment is safe.

4 Tips for a Safer Workplace

1. Follow All Safety Rules

attorneyMany safety regulations may seem like overkill, especially to experienced workers. Unfortunately, that false sense of confidence can easily cause an accident that injures you or someone else. Furthermore, in some jurisdictions your employer may be able to contest your workers' compensation claim if you've clearly violated federal or company safety policies.

2. Keep the Workplace Clear

Pick up any equipment or materials you aren't using, and clean up any debris as soon as possible. This simple step can prevent slips, trips, and falls, which are the most common workplace accidents.

3. Report Unsafe Conditions

When you spot dangerous conditions, it's easy to assume someone else will take care of it. Unfortunately, management may not find out about it until someone's been hurt, so be sure to report any potential hazards as soon as possible.

4. Ask for Directions

Avoid using equipment you haven't been trained on, even if you've seen someone use it before. Even the most basic tools and equipment can cause serious injuries if you haven't received proper instruction.
