Personal InjuryPremises LiabilityWrongful DeathPreventing work-related injuries is a must for Texas employers

April 2, 2013by Aaron Allison

As most Texas readers know, some jobs are more dangerous than others. For example, astronauts puts themselves at a very high risk of danger every time they fly into space, just like factory worker puts themselves at risk when working with dangerous machines. Especially when work environments are dangerous, it is important for employers to provide a safe work environment and insure employees are properly trained in an effort to prevent work-related injuries. Neil Armstrong most likely would not have gone to the moon had NASA failed to provide him with the proper safety equipment and training. While many Texas workplaces are safe, there are still many that are not.

Accidents usually do not just happen in the workplace without fault. Almost every time, someone or something is to blame, and work-related injuries occur on a regular basis. Often times these injuries can be fatal. In 2010, exactly 4,690 American workers were killed on the job. There are many things an employer can do to insure safety for their workers, including providing proper training to all employees. Any time an employer fails to educate or train their employees on workplace hazards, the employer may be liable for any injuries that occur.
