PHILADELPHIA, PA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/06/13 -- Chad Boonswang, a noted attorney, frequently represents clients involved in personal injury cases. Many of these cases stem from poor workplace safety regulations, which can lead to injury and even death. The tragic explosions that recently took place in Texas have called the public's attention to this issue, according to a recent article published by The Huffington Post. The article asserts that, according to a new poll, many members of the American population want to improve workplace safety regulations by implementing stricter guidelines.

The article reveals the results of the poll: "According to a new survey, 44 percent of Americans say that current workplace safety regulations are not strict enough, compared to 26 percent who said that they are about right and 7 percent who said they are too strict.

"But asked which they thought would do more to prevent another accident like the one in Texas, 52 percent of respondents said that better enforcement of existing regulations would be the most effective, while 18 percent said stricter safety regulations would be more effective."

Clearly, the need to enforce regulations to a higher degree is an important aspect of improving workplace safety. But the issue of whether or not to create stricter guidelines is still being debated, although a large percentage of respondents to the poll indicated that more rigorous safety requirements would prove beneficial.

Chad Boonswang asserts that the responsibility falls on the shoulders of both the government and individual companies. While federal safety regulations are certainly a benefit to the health of workers, Boonswang believes that it is up to individual businesses to establish organizational regulations that focus on the best interest of employees.

"Keeping employees safe and healthy is the right thing to do," Boonswang explains, "and it is the right thing for many reasons. First and foremost, the leaders of companies should care about their employees enough to keep them safe. But beyond that, keeping medical costs down and personal injury lawsuits at bay can increase financial success and reduce the amount that companies spend on insurance and other costs. As such, it is a win-win for both professionals and the businesses that hire them."

Chad Boonswang encourages anyone who has been injured on the job to contact an experienced and qualified legal representative for guidance.
