    Top 5 safety tips: Tiling a bathroom wall

    Whatever your professional field, there is always a chance that you will experience accidents at work. From teachers to postmen, and retail assistants to architects, whatever your sector, work-related risks vary, but are always present.

    This is true for handymen, labourers who are known for their hard-working nature. Not shy of a day’s work, these are the workers who are regularly expected to work with chemicals, specialist equipment and sharp, dangerous tools, while completing skilled tasks.

    With this being the nature of the role, as you can expect, accidents at work for labourers are common and can lead to a variation of work-related illness and injuries, some more critical than others.

    Below are five simple safety tips to help prevent accidents when tiling a bathroom:

    1. Safety equipment and clothing – mask, gloves and eye protection
    2. Ensure the flooring isn’t wet to prevent slips, trips and falls
    3. Make sure the room is well lit
    4. Maintain your working area – do not leave tools and broken tiles loose on the floor
    5. Keep the bathroom clear – make sure that both adults and children are aware that work is taking place in the bathroom

    Sustaining an injury at work

    When you sustain an injury at work, that wasn’t your fault, you may be able to claim personal injury compensation for the harm you have suffered.

    All employers have a legal responsibility to guarantee their employers health and safety while at work. Should you sustain an injury and you believe your employer is to blame, they could be liable for any harm you have suffered.
