It is essential that employees in Pittsburgh and across Pennsylvania feel like they are as safe as possible when they go to work each day. Every employer has the responsibility to fulfill this expectation, to a reasonable extent, for its employees. When a workplace is unsafe, it can lead to unnecessarily injured workers and, in turn, workers' compensation claims.
Unsafe work conditions can arise from any number of conditions in the workplace. The workplace may be unsafe due to a lack of appropriate safety training, equipment that is not appropriately maintained, inadequate adherence to required safety measures and much more. Recently, employees at Philadelphia International Airport have expressed their concerns about the unsafe work conditions in which they execute their daily responsibilities.
