  14. True Cost of Accidents • Accident Description • An ironworker was directing the placement of a rebar bundle unloaded from a flatbed in the laydown yard. While backing up, the worker tripped in a small hole as the bundle was being lowered to the ground. The worker twisted his ankle and badly bruised his foot. • The crane operator was able to lift the load quickly off his foot while a few other workers in the area came to assist him. The crane operator and 3 other workers stopped activity to help carry the injured worker to the foreman’s truck for transport to the clinic. • The injury required an initial visit to the clinic for x-rays and treatment, and 2 follow-up visits prior to the worker being released with no work restrictions. He lost 2 days of work.

  21. Legal Issues and Liability As a result of safety violations: You can be named in a lawsuit Criminal charges may be filed against you You can be cited by an enforcement agency You can be fined by an enforcement agency Your workplace can be shut down by an enforcement agency

  22. Legal Issues and Liability Because of personal liability, and you can be named as a defendant in a lawsuit

  23. Legal Issues and Liability You can have criminal charges filed against you. Negligent supervisors and employers have been charged with manslaughter

  24. Legal Issues and Liability You can be cited by an enforcement agency Your State Department of Labor (DOL) EPA/MDE Federal/State OSHA has authority to get involved

  25. Legal Issues and Liability You can be fined by an enforcement agency Federal/State OSHA will issue citations first There is current legislation to increase penalties EPA will levy fines… These get real expensive
