OSHA Partners To Protect Female Construction Workers

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has formed an alliance with the National Association of Women in Construction to protect women in the construction industry, according to the link below. The construction accident lawyers at Block O'Toole & Murphy give their take below.

Women in the construction field have long been plagued by ill-fitting personal protective equipment and increased exposure to musculoskeletal problems. The problems they have traditionally endured are unique to female construction workers. After all, most tools, equipment and safety devices were designed to be used by men. A receptive audience to address these issues has been elusive, perhaps, until now. This alliance between OSHA and the National Association of Women in Construction will attempt to remedy this. Their goals will include an increase in awareness through training and education as well as developing outreach programs for women in the industry. The focus will be making the job safer. They also hope to make the career for a woman in construction more attractive.

Construction accident attorney Robyn Brazzil, of Block O'Toole & Murphy, has done her fair share of battles on behalf of injured construction workers. In fact, Block O'Toole & Murphy is one of the few law firms in New York to fight for injured female construction workers. Brazzil notes that "This program will hopefully give women an opportunity to succeed in a highly competitive industry and reduce the barriers to other women entering the construction field."

Block O'Toole & Murphy is one of the premier construction accident and serious personal injury law firms in New York. The lawyers at Block O'Toole & Murphy have a long and proud tradition fighting on behalf of seriously injured workers, including more than $700,000,000 in verdicts and settlements on behalf of injured victims.
