Workplace injuries in Maryland occur as employers disregard pleas

Maryland employers have the responsibility to keep workplaces safe and train all incoming employees on safety measures. As new safety guidelines are implemented, employers also have the obligation to provide continued support and training to employees while maintaining safe and productive workplaces. The main goal of the guidelines is to help eliminate workplace injuries. When employers ignore safety concerns, employees often suffer the consequences.

Employers have the responsibility under Maryland law to do everything in their power to keep their employees safe while working on the job. Ensuring the work site is safe is imperative to keeping workplace injuries at bay, but some employers fail to follow the laws.
