Was Your Workplace Accident Caused by a Safety Violation?
The Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation Division of Safety and Hygiene has established specific safety requirements for employers to insure the safety of their workers. If any of these requirements are violated, the injured worker may be entitled to an additional monetary award.
Some of the more common safety violations are:
- Removal or absence of a safety guard
- Failure to provide personal protective equipment such as safety helmets, eye or ear protection, foot protection or respiratory protection
- Lack of a guard railing, toe boards or other fall protection for scaffolding, roofs or floor openings
- Failure to use lock out / tag out procedures
- Providing faulty equipment
