    Can an accident prevention course stop injuries?

    Accidents can and do happen at workplaces across the country, whether you work in an office or on a building site. There are steps your employer can take to prevent accidents and keep employees safe at work, and one of these things is holding an accident prevention course or attending a course designed to raise awareness of accident prevention. This type of training can help employers to become aware of workplace risks and hazards and put in place measures to reduce the risk of accidents happening. Specialist training for staff could also help them to be more aware of the risks they face every day in their job. Whilst this won’t completely eliminate the possibility of accidents happening, it can reduce the risk.

    Has your employer been on an accident prevention course?

    If your employer has been on an accident prevention course or held one for employees at work, it shows that they take the health and safety of their staff members very seriously – a positive thing. However, employers who don’t take health and safety seriously could be putting their staff at risk. Failing to adhere to health and safety regulations and being unaware of hazards in the workplace could lead to an accident happening sooner or later. If you have been injured in an accident at work and you think that your employer was to blame, you can get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline to find out more about making a claim. There’s a three-year time limit for all claims, so rather than waiting around, it’s wise to get in touch with us as soon as possible after you’ve been injured.

    Have you suffered serious injuries at work?

    Although accident prevention courses can’t completely prevent accidents at work from happening, you’re less likely to be injured if your employer is aware of workplace hazards. If you have been seriously injured at work – for example if you’ve suffered a serious head injury after falling from height – a relative could make a personal injury claim on your behalf for your pain, suffering and loss of earnings, both now and in the future.

    You can find out more about making a claim or see whether you are eligible to claim by calling Accident Advice Helpline on our freephone helpline on 0800 689 0500 (or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile). We don’t charge any upfront fees as our lawyers work on a 100% no-win, no-fee* basis.
