The Parkersburg office of the Tri-State Roofing and Sheet Metal Company has recently been recognized for reaching excellence in the workplace safety of their office. The company has logged nearly 500,000 hours of injury free work. This year marks the fourth year in a row that there has not been a workplace injury logged that required lost work time.
Officials have stated that their success in safety can be contributed to how their workers are committed to their safety program, “Working Safe.” This program features a safety certification, ongoing training sessions, regular meetings on safety issues, and frequent evaluation.
Workplace safety is a topic that many people take for granted because we think that our employers are doing what is needed to keep ourselves and fellow co-workers safe at all times. Unfortunately, some jobs are not as safe as others and these employers need to go above and beyond the standard requirements in order to ensure that their job environment is not hazardous.
If you have been injured while working, no matter the occupation or circumstances, your voice deserves to be heard. Contact a knowledgeable Cincinnati workplace injury attorney at Stepleton Dugan, LLC today and discuss your legal options.
