Avoiding Construction Site Injuries, Just in Time for Labor Day
Labor Day is right around the corner. Though the day is associated with a long weekend, cookouts, and time spent with family, the day is meant to celebrate the contributions of labor to the nation and the advancements made in labor productivity, strength, and safety of labor and workers in the country. While great strides have been made in improving the working conditions of the American worker over the years, it would be erroneous to say that employees in California or elsewhere are completely protected from danger while on the worksite. Construction workers, in particular, have always had a significantly higher risk of injury or death when compared with other workers. So, on this Labor Day, we at The Barnes Firm would like to discuss construction accidents in New York & California – and what workers can do if they find themselves hurt on the job.
