While you might think your workplace should always be safe, not all employees avoid injuries. The Law Firm of Lyle B. Masnikoff & Associates, P.A. can help you when you’ve injured yourself through no fault of your own, but the best defense against injuries at work is your own common sense.
Protect Your Health
In Fort Lauderdale companies, you will learn ways to perform your job without injury. It is essential that employees receive training and that they follow their employee handbooks and manuals.

- Follow directions
- Ask for help
- Do not drink or take illegal drugs during worktime
- Wear protective equipment at all times
