    How to claim school janitor injury compensation


    A school janitor will very likely tackle a wide range of jobs throughout the day. For example they might take on plenty of cleaning, as well as minor maintenance jobs whenever required. The exact nature of the work required will depend on the employer and which school the janitor is working at. However, you can be sure the tasks will be quite varied.

    Another thing that doesn’t change from job to job is the need for the janitor to be given all appropriate training prior to the job beginning. This is very important because you never know what might go wrong if you don’t get this training. Other aspects such as manual handling and working at height training, often involving ladders, are important as well.

    Is a lack of training behind school janitor injury compensation claims?

    It can be, but while injuries of this kind are rare, there are cases where other things might happen as well. For example you could end up being injured because you are walking across an icy playground in the winter and you slip over and hurt yourself. It would be your employer’s responsibility to make sure the premises are safe in every respect, and that includes the playground.

    It is cases like these where someone could end up having good reason to try and claim school janitor injury compensation. Any injury that is caused because of a third party being negligent in some way could well lead to this potential outcome.

    How can you find out whether this is the case in your situation?

    The most important thing to note is whether the accident happened within the last three years. Once you can answer this in the affirmative you are able to consider whether there is evidence to support the suggestion that someone else was negligent in their behaviour or actions in your workplace.
