Your Rights Under OSHA
When it comes to the risk of injury at construction sites, the possibilities are endless. It is crucial that every individual working on a construction site acts with attentive, careful caution. Additionally, construction companies are responsible for doing all they can to maintain a safe work environment. In an effort to enforce this responsibility, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has implemented standards of safety for construction sites.
Your rights under OSHA include:
- Safe working conditions
- Safe equipment and tools
- Safety training, education, and communication
- Ability to request inspections for unsafe conditions or violations of regulations at workplace conducted by an OSHA officer
- Access to a copy of inspection results
- Access to a safety handbook provided by employer
- Access to records of work-related injuries and illnesses
If you are injured while working at a construction site, our attorneys will conduct a thorough investigation to ensure that OSHA regulations were being met by your employer. If your rights as an employee were violated, and your safety was compromised, you have the right to hold your employer accountable.

After I was hurt on the job, my company tried to keep me from filing worker’s compensation. Instead, they offered to pay me cash. They told me not to file a worker’s compensation claim – that they would take care of me. When I went a got an MRI on my own, they fired me. Clint Brasher took my case all the way to trial. My employer offered a $25,000.00 right before trial to settle the case. Clint said no and convinced a jury to award me $852,000.00 plus interest. I recommend anyone with a legal problem to call The Brasher Law Firm.Jimmy Couch Jr.Beaumont, Texas
The DPS officer told us it was our daughter’s friend, not the driver of an 18-wheeler, that was the cause of our daughter’s death. We didn’t know where to turn. Clint Brasher helped us through a difficult time. And, when the truck company offered us a decent settlement, it was Clint who told us to wait because he didn’t feel something was right. We trusted him. We found out later that the driver was using illicit drugs and exceeding the speed limit. Once Clint got all of the information, we were able to resolve the case on our terms.Lisa TrentWinnie, Texas
