In recent posts, we have discussed what might happen if property owners are negligent in keeping premises safe and a customer is injured as a result. Liability issues may occur on the job site, as well. Anyone can suffer injuries from virtually any type of industry, from office work to road construction. At Aldrich Law Firm, Ltd., we understand that it is vital for you, as a Las Vegas employer, to provide a safe workplace.
Falls, sprains, strains and repetitive movement injuries are among the most common ways employees can get hurt at any job. For example, a worker might trip over an electrical cable that is placed in the way at your office. Someone could sprain their back from lifting boxes or equipment the wrong way or without help or proper lifting equipment. If the job requires repetitive motions, such as typing or manually controlling machinery, your employees might develop carpal tunnel syndrome, especially if their workspace is not ergonomically correct.
