Many of us have to study and train to get the job of our dreams. Once you’ve landed the perfect job, the last thing you want is to be involved in an accident at work. When you go to work, you should be able to go about your business without any worries about your safety. If you’ve had an accident at work or you’ve been injured due to insufficient or improper training, you may wish to call Accident Advice Helpline. We will help you to find out more about claiming compensation.
Types of accident that can be caused by insufficient or improper training
Many roles require training. We undertake training to develop our skills and learn how to do specific jobs in a safe and effective manner. If you’ve been injured as a result of insufficient or improper training, your employer has not fulfilled their duty to protect you at work. Accidents that may arise from a lack of training include:
- Injuries caused by using incorrect manual handling and lifting techniques
- Falls from height
- Injuries caused by using machines or power tools in the wrong way
- Injuries caused by handling hazardous chemicals incorrectly
If your employer has asked you to do a job for which you don’t have the required training, and you sustain injuries as a result, you have every right to make a claim for work accident compensation. All employers in the UK have a legal responsibility to ensure that their workforce is trained to do the tasks asked of them.
