Cal- OSHA Non-Compliance
The California Occupational Safety and Health Administration requires that a firm seek a permit before engaging in certain work activities. The state then inspects before issuing the permit to ensure safety rules are complied with. Where workers are injured due to deliberate non-compliance with Cal- OSHA regulations, they may file suit for full damages in the civil courts for intentional misconduct, the Workers' Compensation law notwithstanding.
Those injured due to Cal- OSHA non-compliance are urged to contact a Los Angeles harbor industrial machinery accident lawyer.
