Injury Risks for Pittston Warehouse Workers

The hard-working and dedicated men and women working daily at the Pittston Business Park distribution centers are exposed on every shift to various dangers in the workplace including conveyor belts and other equipment. Unfortunately, this energized equipment brings with it all types of potential accidents and injuries. Nib points, unguarded cutting mechanisms, fast-moving conveyor belts, and other types of equipment create perfect scenarios for fingers, hands, clothing, and other body parts to be trapped resulting in degloving, fractures, and amputations. 

The trial lawyers at Dougherty Leventhal Price LLP have handled these types of cases for over forty-five (45) years. As a result of this experience, DLP attorneys have learned that workers should never try to clear a jam or work on equipment before making absolutely sure that the equipment is fully turned off. Employees must always follow proper lock-out tag-out (LOTO) procedures. Most important, employees must NEVER bypass an equipment guard or deactivate or remove a guard or kill switch EVEN IF ORDERED BY THE FOREMAN. DLP lawyers have represented too many workers who have been seriously hurt because they took shortcuts or were coerced into getting things done faster by their superiors.
