Understanding OSHA and construction accidents
According to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), of the 4,251 worker fatalities in 2014, 874 or 20.5% of those occurred in construction. Statistics like this are why safety standards are so important. OSHA has a set of rules to which all construction sites are expected to adhere. The goal of OSHA standards is to reduce injuries, illnesses, and deaths on or near construction sites.
If you were injured as a construction worker, visitor, independent contractor, or passerby to a construction site and feel the site was in violation of OSHA, our Lexington construction site accident law firm can tell you how to proceed.
