    How to claim kitchen staff slip compensation


    Slipping over in a kitchen can be a very painful and dangerous experience. Since other people will be working at speed with hot pans and all manner of ingredients, you might end up knocking into one of them as you slip. This in turn could lead to a more serious accident under some circumstances.

    When you slip over you can hurt yourself quite badly. For example, let’s suppose you are carrying a hot pan when you slip. If you lose your balance and fall over, the contents of the pan could be spilled on top of you. You might receive similar injuries if you knock into someone else as you slip, and the pan they are carrying is then dropped.

    The importance of health and safety in the kitchen

    Health and safety is of vital importance in every workplace. However your employer will have the ultimate level of responsibility in making sure the health and safety rules are adhered to at all times. If you are injured while slipping over in the kitchen, you have a right to see whether you have a chance to make a claim for kitchen staff slip compensation. After all, your injuries might keep you off work for a period of time. If they are serious they might even affect the way you go about your daily life from that moment onwards.

    Kitchen slip injuries can involve hot pans, boiling water and even other things. If you are carrying a knife you should know to carry it pointing downwards. However even this does not completely get rid of the chance of being injured if you slip over.

    Knowing what to do next

    You should have some idea of basic first aid and to know what to do if you do slip over in the kitchen. However if you know you slipped as a result of the floor being dirty or slippery, you may have a good case to argue for kitchen staff slip compensation.
