  • unclean and slippery floors;
  • obstructions in the working environment such as tools, machinery, equipment, etc.;
  • exposed moving parts on heavy machinery;
  • inappropriate gear; and
  • fatigue from long hours or hard manual labor. 
Your employer has a legal obligation to protect your safety while you are working. If health and safety problems go unnoticed or uncorrected serious injuries and even death can result. If you were injured at work because of your employer’s negligence, you could be eligible to file a claim and receive compensation for your damages with the help of a liability attorney in Philadelphia.
