Law360 Cites Expert Testimony
Law360 covered a case in the Circuit Court of Cook County weighing the effectiveness of safety signs at McDonald's restaurants in a suit brought by McDonald's employees. Dr. Peter Orris, professor of environmental and occupational health sciences and director of the Occupational Health Services Institute, testified as an expert witness in the case, noting that workplace training can only go so far to prevent accidents and safety lapses.
“You have to find ways where people are working to remind them, ‘Use the hand sanitizer, wash your hands. It’s not the easiest thing in the world because we all tend to disregard signs that we’ve seen five or six times and we don’t reread them, so how you develop that is difficult.Director, Occupational Health Services Institute|
