If you have been injured while woodworking, you may have asked yourself, ‘Can I claim for an accident in a woodwork workshop?’ Woodwork workshops are not always the safest of places to be, and whether you work there or are just visiting, the shop management has a duty of care to ensure that you are safe at all times.
The shop management should have taken all the appropriate health and safety measures in advance of anyone being in the room. There should be signs up telling you where you can walk and where you should not. There should be signs on or near each piece of equipment telling you what personal protective equipment you should be using. There should also be a policy on working alone – were you left by yourself to carry out a dangerous task? This should not happen under modern health and safety regulations. You should also be trained to use any piece of equipment in the workshop. If training is not carried out, then you could easily be in danger of being hurt. If any or all of these measures are not taken, then accidents will inevitably happen, and it is the responsibility of the person who put you in that situation.
