A number of factors can place the liability for construction-site accidents on a third party. It all comes down to whether anyone involved in the safety of the workers was negligent. Employers are obligated to warn workers of potential hazards and hire employees who are appropriately trained to use the equipment. They must coordinate the job for optimal safety and monitor the worksite to ensure all safety specifications are followed at all times. When they fail to meet their obligation, they are considered negligent.
Sometimes the manufacturer who makes the equipment you use is liable for an accident. If they fail to design the equipment appropriately or use unsafe materials, they can produce products that are defective or dangerous. Using these tools to perform your work puts you at a greater risk of having an accident and a personal injury.
