Toxic Substances and Safe Work Places

Toxic Substances and Safe Work Places

Our workplaces should be a place of safety and respect, yet workplace hazards exist everywhere, including environmental hazards, unsafe working conditions or processes, drug and alcohol abuse, and workplace violence.  Work place safety refers to the working environment at your company and encompasses all factors that impact safety, health, and the well-being of the employees and their family members.  Your employer has a duty to provide a safe work environment, and the law imposes obligations on the employer to eliminate personal injuries and illnesses from occurring in the workplace.  Exposure to toxic substances can result in severe injury, brain damage, and even death.

The regulatory scheme governing workplace safety is complex and multi-level.  The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (“OSHA”) is the federal agency that promulgates regulations and safety and health standards to protect employees in the workplace.  States may impose additional workplace regulations on employers, and those regulations vary greatly from state to state.  Navigating through these layers of regulation can be complicated and frustrating, especially when also dealing with the emotional and physical toll related to work place safety.  If you believe you are working in an unsafe environment, then you need a lawyer that understands both the complex legalities governing workplace safety as well as the scientific and medical issues related to the safety risks.
