    Top 5 potential accident claims for a sports match day steward

    Taking into account the role of a sports match day steward, accidents at work will always be a factor you have to consider.

    Being involved in an incident at work which causes injury not only leaves you in physical pain but can also impact on your confidence in the job role, going forward. If you have an accident at work, it may not be your fault and your employer may be liable.

    How common are accidents at work?

    According to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, 26.4 million working days are lost annually to work related injuries and illness.

    1. Physical harm from violence or crushing by attendees of the event
    2. Road traffic accidents or being run over if helping manage the car park
    3. Slips, trips and falls getting around the venue
    4. Burns sustained from hot drinks in the crowd or flares and pyrotechnics
    5. Blindness caused by objects being thrown from the crowd

    As sporting events become more and more popular, and the introduction of stadiums being used for normally non-stadium events, such as boxing and wrestling, the rise in accidents at work for stewards is on the increase.

    The management company or site managers of where the event is taking place have a responsibility to look out for your health and safety while at work. If you feel you have not been correctly trained or have not been protected accordingly, then your employer may be liable for your accident at work.
