If you’ve suffered an injury at work, you may be thinking about claiming compensation. Compensation may be awarded in cases where an employee was injured as a result of an employer’s negligence. In cases where the employee displayed negligent behaviour, a claim for an accident at work would not be approved.

If you suffer an injury at work, when is your employer not liable?
In some cases, work accidents occur as a result of an employer failing to adhere to health and safety regulations. In this case, an employee who suffered work-related injuries would have the right the claim compensation.
In cases where you suffer an injury at work and it was your fault, you would not be able to make a claim against your employer.
Examples of cases which would not be approved include failing to wear protective clothing or use suitable personal protective equipment and failing to comply with the company’s health and safety guidelines.
