There are many areas in which employers can be held liable if an employee, contractor or visitor is injured or contracts a disease due to the negligence or lack of safety at a workplace. There could be products used that are proven to cause disease, such as asbestos; there could be machinery that does not function safely, causing injuries; there could be messiness in a workplace that causes trips and falls, etc. Employers are also responsible to protect employees and contractors with appropriate safety education and safety equipment as needed. If a work-related injury occurs, the employer may be held liable for any damages to the injured victim if the lack of safety education or equipment is proven.
