When you think about on-the-job accidents and injuries in California, you may not immediately think about office work. While the dangers in an office may not be as scary as those on a construction site, there are many possibilities for injuries lurking in the halls and at the desks of office workers. You do not want to underestimate the risks of your job because that increases the chances you will suffer an injury.
When you were first hired for your job in California, you probably received training that informed you about how to do your job and how to manage any hazards that you may encounter along the way. Your employer may have even provided you with instructions for reporting hazards that could cause a danger to you and your coworkers. However, if your employer is showing negligence in assessing hazards and implementing solutions to mitigate their danger, you may be considering submitting a complaint to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
