A Safety Expert Can Help Your Case

25 Apr 2019 11:03 AM | Jennifer Edwards (Administrator)

A safety expert can provide a lot more than just compliance regulation information. A safety professional can help lawyers paint the “big picture” to a jury by providing insights into the safety culture surrounding an incident or the development of a product or machine. Does the surrounding culture suggest a compliant environment / employer, or does it lead one to believe that safety was not a top priority? Reverse of that would see a strong culture where there is proper signage, floor markings, robust machine guarding, and accountable employees. From a manufacturer’s perspective, the warnings, safety devices, and features of the design itself can provide evidence of consideration of safety concerns, with or without a documented risk assessment.  Then you can make the case whether a manufacturer was doing its part and acting as a good corporate citizen.
