If you work in Haringey you will be aware this is a busy and vibrant area to be in. Working here is a challenge you may well rise to and love every minute of, but whatever job you do you should be safe in the knowledge you are not in any danger. Fortunately this is true of the vast majority of workers in Haringey and indeed throughout London and beyond. However it does not hold true in every circumstance.
If you suffer injuries at work in Haringey you might wonder how those injuries came to occur. Sometimes accidents do just happen, and no one is at fault. A freak accident could happen at any time without anyone being responsible for it. However, there can be situations where people end up suffering problems that could potentially have been prevented.
Understanding how injuries at work in Haringey might potentially occur
Every employer has a clear duty of care in the workplace. They must ensure the workplace is safe and that every task to be done is safe to proceed with in a particular manner. This is why so many risk assessments are completed in a wide variety of workplaces on a regular basis. It can make all the difference between providing a safe way to go about things and a method that could potentially be hazardous.
When an injury is sustained to a worker, it is important to determine what happened and how it was able to happen. Sometimes it could just be an accident. However, in some cases it will be proven that the employer or someone else was negligent in causing the injury to happen.
Obviously the best course of action is to do everything possible to prevent injuries of all kinds from happening. By doing risk assessments before tasks are begun, and by monitoring work at various stages, the workplace can be much safer than it may otherwise be.
