Overcoming blind spots in the workplace

Oklahoma residents who work at loading docks or deal with heavy equipment are at risk from collisions caused by blind spots. The lack of visibility in one's workplace can result in accidents that cause significant physical injuries and even death.

Even if there are safety measures in place, accidents can still occur because the precautions are not infallible. For example, it is easy for people who work inside or outside a busy and noisy warehouse to ignore the warning sounds emitted by machines like forklifts. Employees can become so used to the sounds that they fail to pay them any attention.

Safety mirrors and domes can be used to see around corners and prevent collisions in work areas such as warehouses or plants. They are cost-effective, long-lasting tools that can be customized to address the specific needs of a work area.

There are multiple factors that have to be considered when choosing what types of safety mirrors to use. For example, property owners should think about the manner in which aisles form intersections, the type of vehicles or machinery that is being used and the direction of traffic in a work area. The occurrence of inclement weather, the ease with which a mirror can be attached to a surface and whether or not the mirror is resistant to breakage also have to be taken into account.

Workplace injuries that result from unsafe conditions in a work area may be cause for legal remedy. A personal injury attorney could help a client file for workers' compensation benefits or appeal a denied claim. Liability against a third party may be pursued, if applicable, for rehabilitation or lost wages.
