Commonplace accidents at work
While everyone likes to think that they are safe at work, and are keeping their colleagues safe at work, accidents unfortunately do happen. Thousands of accidents occur every year in the workplaces of the United Kingdom, and a great many of them could actually be avoided.
Here are some of the most common workplace accidents:
- Slips, trips and falls
- Chemical burns
- Injuries caused by poorly-maintained equipment
- Accidents resulting from poor or insufficient training
- Failure to adhere to health and safety procedures
Sadly the above are very common and a great many individuals are left injured because of the situations on this list. Often these accidents could be avoided if only more time was taken or better training was provided.
Ultimately when an employee is injured at work, the employer is responsible and if they have failed in their duty of care they are responsible for the accident. An employer who does not ensure training is up to date or machinery kept in pristine condition is failing in their duty of care.
