Should I notify management after a construction accident injury?
I spoke to a man that works at a large nuclear power plant outside of Waynesboro, Georgia recently. He injured his back in a construction accident. One of the questions he had for me was, “Should I notify management?” If you’re reading this, you may have the same question. I told that man the same thing that I would tell you. Always notify management about your construction accident.
Many workers are afraid that management will retaliate against them for reporting accidents. Many construction companies, including the nuclear power plant, pride themselves on not having any lost work time at their construction sites. However, if you do not notify the management of your accident, they will use that against you and it may be a bar to your accident case.
