    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    What does the ‘Six Pack’ refer to in regards to health and safety?

    When you leave home each morning, the last thing you want to think about is an accident at work and this is why health and safety guidelines are so important in the workplace. Unfortunately, thousands of people are injured at work each year in the UK. If you’ve had an accident at work and you were not to blame, you may be able to claim compensation.

    Preventing work accidents: the Six Pack

    Many people may think about a refreshing beer or rock-solid abs when they hear the words six pack; however, in the world of health and safety, the Six Pack refers to a set of guidelines, which was introduced in 1992 to prevent workplace accidents and injuries. The Six Pack is a comprehensive guide, which informs employers about their responsibilities and promotes safe and healthy workplaces.

    How can employers reduce the risk of work injuries?

    In accordance with the Six Pack, employers have the following responsibilities with a view to reducing the number of people injured at work in the UK:

    • To perform regular risk assessments.
    • To detect and address specific risks to pregnant women and new mothers and young employees who lack experience.
    • To make effective health and safety plans for the future and perform regular reviews.
    • To appoint members of staff to implement and promote health and safety in the workplace and work with other employers to ensure the safety of all employees in situations where premises are shared.
    • To devise and implement means of coping with dangerous or hazardous situations.
    • To provide training for employees.
