Poor leadership can make workplaces unsafe

Management that fails to treat workers properly may be impacting their job performance and their safety. This is because Connecticut workers and others who are treated poorly tend to make decisions that benefit themselves personally. However, these decisions may have negative consequences for other team members. In some cases, people act out a sense of self-preservation because they aren't sure how they fit into the group or how they are seen by others on their team.

Employers may want to consider creating a culture that focuses more on allowing everyone to get to know each other. Furthermore, companies should conduct regular workplace reviews so that everyone knows where they stand and no one feels left out. Managers are encouraged to develop strong relationships with their employees that are built on a sense of trust and respect for their needs. Generally speaking, treating people as more than commodities can help them be more productive.

If a worker is hurt on the job, it can be painful for both the employee and the employer. An employee may take several weeks or months recovering from back, neck or other types of injuries. In some cases, an employee may not be able to return to work at all. If this is the case, he or she may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits on a long-term or permanent basis.

An attorney may help a person fill out an application for benefits or help appeal an application that was denied. If necessary, the appeal might take place in court where an attorney may present evidence that a worker was hurt at work. Generally, a person is still entitled to a portion of lost wages and payment for medical bills even if he or she played a role in causing a workplace accident.
