New York Eye Injuries Lawyer

Eye safety procedures should be followed on New York job sites to reduce the risk of eye injuries.

Due to the chemicals and hazardous materials present at New York construction sites, it is imperative that proper eye safety procedures are followed by all workers. Protective eyewear should be worn by construction workers at all times and first aid and eye washing stations should be available in the event of contamination. Nails guns, splinters, pieces or metal and wire, dust, grit, and dangerous chemicals all pose a risk of eye injuries. Workers should be aware of these risks and take precautions to minimize the chance of a serious accident.

Negligence and Eye Injury

However, construction workers must be properly trained on eye safety and the protocols for using hazardous materials and maintaining a clean jobsite. Individuals and groups like contractors, building owners, construction management companies, and construction site owners are responsible for ensuring the safety of the site and its compliance with the applicable OSHA regulations and New York construction laws.
