Most people think one of the last places they would be hurt is their place of work. We assume that wherever we go, precautions have been taken to protect us from harm. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. This is especially in certain industries that are inherently more dangerous than others. When someone works in a high-hazard industry, they might expect higher pay due to the risk, but if you were harmed on the job due to someone’s negligence, you might be owed finical compensation. Some of the most dangerous industries to work in are listed below.
>Beef Cattle Feedlots.
>Marine Cargo Handling.
>Scrap and Waste Handling.
>Packing and Crating.
Of course, these are not the only jobs that are dangerous. Any job has the potential to be hazardous when the proper precautions are no taken to ensure safety. To make sure workers are safe, we have guidelines set out by organizations such as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
Work Place Safety
Employers must provide safe workplaces for employees. This is all thanks to the OSH act which introduced OSHA, the organization that governs health and safety conditions in most private industries. Employers are obligated to follow OSHA rules and regulations. This is all in an effort to free employees from serious risks and hazards.
If a business fails to provide a safe workplace, and an employee is hurt or even dies as the result, the employer should be held responsible. For that, you’ll need to show that the employer was negligent. Negligence may include a number of things. Something such as failing to inspect the work area, or even improper or inadequate training is all considered negligence.
