Whenever you take on a job you would rightly expect to receive proper training so you can do that job to the best of your ability. Furthermore you would expect to be able to work in safety. Even when you have a job that could be potentially dangerous, such as working as a police officer for example, you have a right to expect your employer to make that job as safe as it can possibly be.
For the most part workers up and down the country do enjoy such rights and can work in areas, workplaces and situations that are as safe as they can be expected to be. However there are occasions when things don’t go according to plan. If you are injured at work, you should consider whether or not there was any evidence of negligence in the situation.
Work negligence injury compensation can be a possibility
We all recognise that things can sometimes happen that are simply no one’s fault. The same can sometimes occur in the workplace. However there can also potentially be cases where people are injured because of work negligence of some kind.
For instance, if your job role requires you to operate one or more pieces of machinery, you have a right to be trained in how to use that machinery. If this is not the case and you are injured using it, you may have a good case to argue for work negligence injury compensation to be paid to you.
