Business owners and supervisors retain responsibility for ensuring the work environments at which their employees complete jobs are free from safety hazards. If the area fails to be properly maintained or contains unsafe conditions, workers may incur numerous personal injuries or even fatalities while working. Although many fields, especially the construction industry, often carry occupational hazards, it is up to the individuals in charge to ensure safety standards are met to prevent potential accidents.
