With all the heavy machinery, materials, and people moving from place to place, construction sites can be extremely dangerous for workers if proper safety measures are not observed. Construction workers need to be able to complete their job, knowing that their safety is cared for. In situations where a construction site violates safety codes, workers and passersby may be at serious risk of injury.
Every construction company is responsible for being aware of pertinent safety regulations and maintaining compliance actively. Employee safety should be a primary concern of every company, and a failure to comply with safety codes indicates that it may not be for some companies. If you have been injured on or near a construction site due to egregious violations of safety codes, contact the Oklahoma City safety code violation lawyers of the Abel Law Firm by calling (405) 239-7046.
