How a Tristate Employment Health and Safety Attorney Can Help
Federal and state laws require employers to provide employees proper equipment and training and an environment that is reasonably safe and healthy given the jobs performed. But even employers who strive toward compliance face challenges. The number of regulations is dizzying, leading some employers to avoid developing good safety practices. And penalties for violating health and safety laws like OSHA can be severe. Employers may be liable in damages for some violations, and insurance premiums can rise with a history of safety violations.
Statutory requirements aside, keeping employees safe and healthy is a good business practice that can lead to a more reliable and productive work force.
How can an employer balance safety and health requirements with fiscal responsibility to the business and its employees? Working with counsel experienced in health and safety law issues can help keep your business on the right track and your employees productive.
