Employers are required to maintain as safe a workplace as possible. In industries where there is risk of significant everyday injuries, like in the chemical, oil drilling or construction industries, employers are expected to have certain safety procedures in place and properly train employees to take safety precautions.
Even in an office setting, employers are required to maintain a clean, safe space for employees free of unnecessary hazards, and may be liable if they do not.
