Many people can get injured while on the job at a construction site. The injury may be due to a scaffolding collapse, crane accident or a defective power tool. Recently, a steelworker was injured while working at Lehigh Valley Industrial Park VI in Pennsylvania.

Do workers have the right to report workplace injuries?

Every worker has the right to a safe workplace in Pennsylvania and across the entire United States. The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 ensures that no worker should suffer from serious injuries or fatalities at their workplace, and it makes the employer responsible for providing their workers with a workplace safe from known dangers and hazards.
