It's just a fact of life that accidents are going to happen. Obviously, some accidents are unpredictable and unavoidable. However, most accidents can be prevented by taking the proper safety precautions. In public establishments in New Jersey and across the country, the best ways to prevent accidents are removing potential hazards, keeping walkways clear and appropriately maintaining the property. Failure to take these precautions and keep a safe environment could result in slip-and-fall accidents and injuries to customers.
There is little doubt that part of what attracts people to work in the construction industry in Clinton is the opportunity to avoid the confines of the office and work outdoors. Yet when winter arrives, that benefit can quickly become a hardship, as cold temperatures and winter weather can both delay work and put employees at risk of injuries due to exposure.
