    Why all offices should have a first aid kit

    Accidents happen, and usually, you suffer injuries when you least expect it. If you work in an office, you may assume that you’re immune from injury while you’re sat at your desk, but even the safest-seeming workplaces can become the scene of work accidents and injuries. You never know what’s around the corner, and this is why all offices should have a first aid kit.

    Why all offices should have a first aid kit

    Do you work in an office? Do you know if there’s a trained first aider on hand or even a first aid kit on the site? Many of us go to work every day without even giving our health and safety a second thought. We assume that we’ll arrive, do a day’s work and head home without any worries at all. Sadly, in reality, there’s a risk of injury almost everywhere we go, and even an office can be a dangerous place.

    Accidents can happen at any time in any place and this is why all offices should have a first aid kit. A first aid kit can be used to tend to minor injuries and they can even make a difference in cases where an employee has a more severe injury, and they need urgent attention. First aid is about responding rapidly, and it’s really useful to have a kit that contains essential items nearby.

    Can I claim compensation for an accident at work?

    Many of us have accidents that we bring upon ourselves. Perhaps we’re trying to walk up the stairs at the same time as holding a mug of tea or sending a text message, for example. If you’re to blame for a slip, trip or fall because you weren’t looking where you were going, you won’t have a viable personal injury claim. However, if your employer was to blame because you tripped on a broken step, which had already been reported, or you sustained injuries as a result of using faulty equipment at the office, you could claim work injury compensation.

    If you can prove that you were not to blame and you’d like expert advice about claiming compensation for an office accident, call Accident Advice Helpline today on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone. Every employee has a right to feel safe at work, and your employer has been negligent, you have the right to make an office accident claim.
