A Safe Working Environment: Your Right as an Employee

At Julie O Legal, we are passionate about defending the rights of injured workers in California. All employees deserve to work in a safe and healthy environment.

Unfortunately, not all employers fulfill their obligation to provide a safe workplace. This can result in severe injuries and even the death of workers.

As a worker in California, you have the right to:

– A workplace free from hazards: Your employer must identify and eliminate potential risks, such as defective machinery, hazardous chemicals, or slippery floors.

– Safety training and education: The company must provide the necessary training and education to perform your job safely.

– Personal protective equipment: Your employer must provide appropriate personal protective equipment (helmets, safety goggles, and gloves) when necessary.

– Safety inspections: Your company must conduct regular safety inspections in the workplace and investigate any incidents or injuries.

– Reporting hazards without retaliation: You can report workplace hazards without fear of retribution from your company.

If you have been injured at work due to an unsafe work environment, it is essential to take action immediately. Report the injury to your employer and seek medical attention immediately.

You should also contact a workers’ compensation attorney. An attorney can help you understand your rights, file a compensation claim, and obtain the maximum compensation you are entitled to.

At Julie O Legal, we have extensive experience helping injured workers obtain the justice they deserve. We have a team of compassionate and dedicated attorneys who will fight for your rights.
