While suffering an injury at work (regardless of your profession) is relatively unlikely, there are individuals who go to work each day and are the unfortunate victims of such injuries. For the most part injuries are minor but some can be more severe.
Thankfully serious injuries and even deaths are still relatively rare. Numbers in this sense have been dropping ever since the advent of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) several decades ago. However some people still do suffer injuries at work due to potential negligence.
A work injury in East Anglia or any other area of the country could potentially lead to major problems for anyone who is unfortunate enough to suffer in this way. For example an injury could mean that person has to miss work for a period of time. In more serious cases they could be left with problems they would not otherwise have had.
As such there is the potential for an injury to have knock-on effects in terms of the way the affected person lives their life afterwards. This is why it is important to know where you stand if you’ve been injured.
Is it common to be injured at work?
Thankfully no. Most people will go through their entire career without suffering any type of injury. However while the vast majority of employers will take every step they possibly can to provide a safe workplace that poses no potential dangers, there is the chance that some people may be less diligent in this way.
If health and safety laws are breached it could potentially have a serious outcome for anyone who suffers an accident at work as a result. As you can see this is sobering to think about.
