Preventing common liabilities from injuring you at work

When you work in a warehouse and spend your time each day performing the same tasks, you may be a bit oblivious to the liabilities that surround you as you have become so used to the atmosphere and the nature of your responsibilities. However, being aware of common liabilities is important so you can be vigilant in protecting yourself from preventable injuries. At Somma & Macon PC, we have helped many people in Alabama to cope with personal injury cases. 

While your employer should be responsible for maintaining the grounds where you work and taking active measures to evaluate the effectiveness of safety policies and procedures, there may be times when lackluster efforts to prevent liabilities can endanger you and your coworkers. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, some of the common risks you may be subject to include the following:

  • Poorly maintained flooring including walkways that are obstructed by debris, loose mats or worn surfaces.
  • Inadequate lighting that causes visual impairments while you are trying to complete your job responsibilities. 
  • Improperly stored boxes or cases of product that are not safely secured. 

If you are required to work quickly, you could be at an even higher risk of being injured. Other personal risks include your age, whether or not you are wearing proper clothing and gear for your job, and whether or not you are well rested and prepared to perform your job responsibilities. 

When you are aware of common liabilities and are proactive about staying safe, you can prevent avoidable injuries and accidents from happening to you. For more information about premise liabilities, visit our web page.
