The Occupational Safety and Health Administration requires employers nationwide, including Cincinnati, to provide work environments free of known hazards. Employers are responsible for the health and safety of employees, and if they fail to comply with prescribed safety standards, they could face stiff penalties and citations for safety violations. However, such penalties will not make up for the financial and other damages you or any other workplace accident victim suffered.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that millions of people across the U.S. suffer workplace injuries each year, and analysis of data shows that the construction and health care industries are among the most hazardous. A workplace accident can happen at any time, anywhere and to anyone. Fortunately, the state-regulated workers' compensation insurance program will have your back if you should suffer an occupational injury or illness.
