OSHA safety codes include general things like training, first aid and proper safety equipment.

On-the-job injuries often result from some OSHA violation or another. Many injuries result from construction negligence, where employers have not taken the correct measures to ensure workplace safety, or have cut corners simply to save time and money. When the roofing contractors and framing contractors who employ our clients commit such building code violations, they recklessly and needlessly put the lives of their employees at risk.
