ABC Construction Inc. is a well-established builder and solar-powered cabinet shop serving the San Francisco Bay area for many years. The company has built a reputation for quality services and workmanship, and has been extensively covered in local, national media and construction web review sites.
A situation like this where a long-term employee was injured on the job had never occurred in our client’s history. After assisting the employee through hospitalization and several surgeries, ABC Construction Inc. had to address the ramifications of the injury.
One major challenge facing the staff at ABC Construction Inc. was they had little experience dealing with the California Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). There were legal, compliance and regulation considerations that had to be addressed.
ABC Construction Inc.’s founder and CEO said of the situation, “We were committed to doing the right thing to take care of our staff, and wanted a partner who would see us through this difficult situation.”
In a situation like ABC Construction Inc.’s, there were many things to consider:
- Getting the employee help immediately
- Documenting the injury
- Calling the insurance broker for help
