Falling Injury Attorneys : Personal Injury Lawyers
Have you been injured in a fall at work? Let our Law Office help.
Every year hundreds of serious injuries are caused by falls on construction sites. Workers are routinely injured in accidents involving scaffolding collapses, working at heights, and building collapses.
Common falling injuries
Injuries resulting from a fall are often life changing. Even a minor fall can result in broken bones, collapsed lungs and severe lacerations. Falls from a significant height can cause spinal cord injury, paralysis, traumatic brain injury, and death.
Falling injury-preventing OSHA regulations and Texas laws
OSHA regulations require that employers provide their employees with fall protection systems when employees are working at a height above six feet. OSHA also requires that employers protect their employees from falling through holes (including skylights) by using hole covers. The three most common types of fall protection equipment used in the construction industry are fall arrest systems, nets, and guardrails.
According to Texas law, Employers are required to provide their employees with a safe working environment. The law requires that an employer designate a competent person to ensure the safety of other employees working at heights greater than six feet.
