Construction Site Supervisor Negligence
Lawyer for Construction Accident Claims in Los Angeles
A construction site supervisor, often referred to as a foreman or forewoman, is the manager at a construction site. The construction supervisor will manage workers at a construction site and will also create a plan or schedule to follow as the job progresses, keep track of materials used, and communicate to workers about company rules or policies. One of the most important parts of a construction supervisor's job is to ensure that safety rules are followed. Supervisors are typically highly trained and should be well aware of safety regulations as well as proper procedures for performing tasks.
When a construction site supervisor is negligent in any way, he or she places all workers at the site at risk. Construction accidents may occur even when safety regulations are firmly in place and workers are closely supervised, but they are far more likely to happen if the foreman is negligent. Negligence is defined as failing to exercise proper caution or care, thus resulting in injury to another person. For example, a construction site supervisor who is distracted at the site or who is under the influence of alcohol or drugs may cause an accident to occur by failing to enforce safety precautions or company policies in regard to safety or training, failing to recognize and prevent a dangerous work environment, or other similar actions.
