What is OSHA's role in workers' compensation cases?

If you work in New York, you have heard of OSHA, or the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. OSHA defines, monitors, and enforces workplace health and safety standards, including imposing penalties on employers who fail to comply with those standards. But if you have been injured on the job in an unsafe situation, how do OSHA violations tie into workers' compensation claims?

Understanding asthma as an occupational disease

One of your greatest fears on the job in any New York workplace may be developing a chronic illness due to exposure to substances in your environment. You worry that every cough, tickle in the back of your throat or shortness of breath may be occupational asthma. Occupational asthma can arise from a number of circumstances, and we at Angiuli & Gentile, LLP understand the concerns you face when potentially dealing with occupational asthma or another occupational disease.

Yet determining liability in a trench collapse can be tricky, when a number of conditions and variables could have led to the collapse. Trench walls may collapse due to unsafe work conditions, weather factors impacting the site, worker negligence or employer negligence.
