Cleaning may not be your favourite task, but for some people cleaning is a job and not just something that needs to be done at home. Cleaning staff are required in all walks of life and all kinds of businesses. They help to ensure the premises is kept clean, tidy and ready to receive whomever might visit. As such, they play a very important role.
Cleaning may seem to be a very straightforward job. In some ways this would be true; an amount of common sense will certainly go a long way. However, every cleaning company has a duty of care towards its employees, and this extends to providing them with appropriate training and equipment as and when required.
Can injuries be prevented in this line of work?
Very often they can, yes. Of course sometimes every step will be taken to prevent injuries and things can still go wrong. However, when you suffer an injury while working as a cleaner and you think negligence on behalf of your employer was to blame, you should consider trying to get cleaning staff injury compensation. Indeed, if any third party was to blame for injuries you suffered in an accident like this, you might have a chance to claim compensation.
Your injuries could vary from fairly minor ones to far more serious ones. The thing that matters is who caused them to occur in the first place. If you needed medical attention there will be a record of your injuries and how bad they were, and whether any treatment was required. These things can help support a potential cleaning staff injury compensation claim if you make one.
