What You Need to Know About Inadequate Training Injury Claims
By law, employers owe a duty of care to employees. This means they must provide adequate training to increase the safety of their employees and others involved in the day-to-day operations of the company. If an employer fails to provide necessary training, and an employee is injured as a result, the employer may be held liable for negligence.
Inadequate training may result in serious injuries, including:
- Falls from scaffolds, ladders, or other equipment
- Skin burns from chemicals or hot objects
- Back injuries due to improper lifting or inadequate lifting equipment
- Electrical shocks from improper use of equipment or machines
- Long-term medical conditions from inadequate safety procedures
- Other injuries from improper use of tools and machines
Federal and state laws uphold the health and safety of employees. If an employer fails to provide necessary training, work breaks, and safety equipment, he or she will be held liable for negligence in court. You can file an inadequate training injury claim against your employer to seek the financial relief you need for your injuries.
