Important Resources For Workers In The Construction Industry

Construction Worker ResourcesConstruction accidents are unfortunately a common occurrence on work sites. They can occur as a result of various factors and often involve multiple responsible parties. Although this inherently dangerous industry cannot be accident-proofed, a number of different governmental organizations have been formed to help keep the construction sites safe.

Below is a list of organizations that provide helpful resources for construction workers and provide resources to prevent and report construction accidents.

Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) – Employee Workplace Rights

OSHA provides different publications for various sectors in the industry. These publications are for the benefit of the workers and employees. The Employee Workplace Rights publication addresses the legal rights of workers and focuses on the scope of the role of the agency in the workplace.

Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) – Construction Industry

This section of OSHA provides different resources that specifically target the construction industry. The website contains tools for demolition, communication towers, the use of cranes, and fall prevention tips in both public and private construction projects.

Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) – The Whistleblower Protection Programs

This program houses a website that provides information on whistleblower laws, including statutes, regulations and updates. Individuals can file complaints through this website. Additionally, the site provides information on whistleblower protection for both individuals and businesses in a number of different areas.

Department of Labor

The Department of Labor has a website that provides extensive resources for workers in all industries, especially construction. The articles on the agency’s site provide information regarding wages and work hours, workplace safety, and retirement and health benefits.

U.S. Census Bureau – Manufacturing & Construction Division

The U.S. Census Bureau website also provides information relevant to the construction industry and safety procedures on work sites. This information can play an important role in ensuring that the public realizes the dangers and hazards of the construction industry and takes every step possible to increase safety on work sites.

If you have been injured in a construction site accident, the resources mentioned above can be very useful. However, in order to obtain the full extent of the compensation that you deserve, it is important that you immediately consult with an experienced personal injury attorney who specifically handles these types of cases. Without competent legal help, you may fail to file your complaint in a timely manner, not obtain the appropriate medical attention for your injuries and grossly undervalue your claim. While you should use these resources for your own knowledge, nothing can beat the expert assistance of a legal professional.

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers.
