Whether you work in a pub or you enjoy a drink at your local from time to time, it’s important to be aware of the risks of common accidents to occur within a pub.

What are the most common accidents to occur within a pub?
If you work at your local, it’s wise to be wary of some of the most common accidents to occur within a pub. If you’re aware of the risks, this will help to reduce the risk of work accidents and work-related injuries. Your employer must also act to prevent these common accidents from occurring:
- slips, trips and falls
- assault and verbal abuse
- burns and scalds
- cuts from broken glasses and bottles
- injuries caused by machinery
What can I do if I’ve been injured at work in a pub?
If you’ve sustained work injuries and you believe that you were not at fault, you may have a case for work injury compensation. Your employer has a duty to adhere to health and safety regulations in order to protect their workforce from accidents at work, work-related illness and potentially hazardous situations, which may result in work-related injuries. Examples of measures they may employ include:
- ensuring all staff have the relevant training
- enforcing policies to deal with potential hazards; for example, ensuring spillages are cleared up immediately and placing warning signs for staff and public safety
- ensuring all equipment and machinery is checked on a regular basis and functioning properly
- ensuring a zero tolerance policy on abuse and physical assault and providing security
