    Compensation for failed safety protocols


    You might not generally pay much attention to safety protocols and health and safety at your place of work – but failed safety protocols could lead to serious accidents which could result in injuries to members of staff. Safety protocols should be in place to reduce the risk of accidents occurring and keep staff safe at work, and if your employer has failed to put these in place, they could be held liable if somebody has been injured as a result.

    What do we mean by failed safety protocols? Here are a few examples:

    • Machinery should be inspected daily and this does not happen
    • Guards should be in place on machinery with moving parts and this is not the case
    • Employees should be trained when operating a new machine, even if it is similar to one they have used before, and this training isn’t carried out

    Any of these things could easily lead to an accident, and if you’ve been injured, your employer could be responsible. It’s their job not only to ensure that safety protocols are in place, but to make certain that staff are following them, for their own safety and the safety of others.

    Claiming personal injury compensation

    Making a claim for compensation may not be the first thing on your mind after an accident at work – you are probably focusing on recovering from your injuries and paying those household bills whilst you’re not at work. But don’t sit around wondering “what if?” when it comes to making a claim – get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline within three years of your accident and we’ll be able to tell you whether you’re eligible to claim. You could even find out how much compensation you could be entitled to if you head for our website and take the 30-second test. We specialise in personal injury claims and have been in the industry for many years, so why would you use any other law firm?

    The importance of health and safety at work

    Health and safety regulations and protocols are there for a reason, and we believe if your employer has neglected their duties, they should be held liable for your accident and subsequent injuries.
