When an employee is injured on the job and there is no safety equipment, that’s often a big concern. Your employer is required and should provide you with the necessary safety equipment. There are laws such as OSHA and Worker’s Comp Rules which require certain safety equipment to be provided by the employer. So, when in the circumstance where you’ve been injured and the employer has failed to provide safety equipment for your use, you have your worker’s comp rights but you also may have rights under federal and state laws.
