Medical practitioners, including surgeons and emergency room doctors, must meet a standard of care when treating patients. If a doctor acts negligently while treating a patient, they could be liable for the resulting injury, illness, or even death. Examples of medical malpractice include failing to identify symptoms. Making an error during surgery. Failing to follow up with a patient when necessary. Or not considering a patient’s medical history, allergies, or intolerances.

Employers must follow standards set by the Occupational and Safety Health Act (OSHA) so that the workplace is safe for workers to perform their jobs. It is of the utmost importance that employers create an environment that provides adequate protection from harm. They must offer respiratory protection, safe electrical or wiring training, and general protection from hazardous chemicals, machines, and electrical equipment.
