How Negligent Can an Employer Be?

How negligent can an employer be? It's a rhetorical question we suppose...but a real answer...is "EXTREMELY".

"High-Risk Violations"...

That's how an investigation referred to the issues that surrounded a work-related accident & injury. 

An employee at a crate manufacturer severely injured his hand after it got caught in the blades of a ripsaw. He had removed the dust hood to clean the machine, but the blades were still spinning.

Upon review of the worksite, there were no written lockout procedures in place regarding the machine...and that staff wasn't properly trained in handling the machine.

Here again, lies the question....how negligent can an employer be? 

No written directions...no training given...it's despicable. 

Too many times, business owners think they can skirt the rules...skirt the safety measures...in order to save money, and as we've mentioned before, just hope that the worst never happens.
