    Compensation for Scottish workplace injuries

    You’d be forgiven for thinking that workplace accidents only happen in ‘dangerous’ industries such as the agricultural industry or manufacturing industries. I mean, how likely are you to be injured in an office? Actually, Scottish workplace injuries have the potential to happen anywhere, at any time – all it takes is a box of files left in a hallway and you could trip and fall, or a wet floor at your work could cause a slip. It takes less than you might think to cause an accident, but by being aware of your surroundings and taking responsibility for your own safety, and the safety of others at work, you can greatly reduce your chance of sustaining Scottish workplace injuries.

    Whilst you may be able to claim for compensation if you are injured at work, prevention is better than cure, and these tips will help you to stay safe at work:

    • Always work tidily – put boxes or files away when you have finished using them and don’t leave trip hazards for others
    • Keep walkways and hallways clear
    • Report damaged machinery or equipment to management ASAP and ensure that it is fixed
    • Be careful if carrying hot drinks to or from your desk or working area – you could scald yourself or someone else
    • Never climb on chairs or shelves to reach something high up – a step stool or ladder should always be used

    Injured at work? You could lose money

    Being injured at work isn’t just about the physical pain you’ll go through – it’s also about financial losses. You may need to take time off work to recover from your injuries or spend time in hospital for treatment, both of which could mean you’ll suffer loss of earnings. This could affect not only you but your family too, and this will be taken into account when you make a claim for personal injury compensation.
