    Compensation for getting hurt at work


    We all want to work in our ideal job, but some people may not be able to do that for one reason or another. However even when you bear this in mind, everyone has the right to work in a setting that is safe and poses no potential danger to them.

    Wherever you happen to work, you should know your employer has a duty of care towards you and every other employee. It doesn’t matter what position you hold either. In each case you would expect your employer to take every step necessary to ensure you have a safe environment to work in. This holds true for an office, a garage, a gym or a hairdresser’s – whatever you can think of, it holds true for.

    How might getting hurt at work affect your life?

    Getting hurt at work could mean any number of things. It might mean knocking your head on a low shelf that is always in your way when you stand up from your desk. It could mean slipping on a wet floor that was not properly signed as such.

    It could also mean working to the best of your abilities but receiving an injury because you were not given appropriate training for the job you were expected to do. It might even mean working with inappropriate equipment that is potentially dangerous for the job at hand.

    As you can see, getting hurt at work could mean a variety of things. However in each case it could mean you are injured in a way that might affect your life to some extent going forward. This might mean recovering over a number of days and weeks, or having to change your life because your injury was severe.
