What is Construction Liability in Chicago?
Construction liability is the responsibility of an employer to provide a safe working environment for its employees and those who may enter a construction area. According to the Illinois Health and Safety Act, every employer must provide reasonable protection to its employees to prevent bodily harm or death. It is the duty of every employer to:
- be compliant with state laws that reference health and safety standards;
- inform employees about their rights under Illinois health and safety laws; and
- provide information to educate employees about workplace hazards and related prevention, symptoms and treatment.
