    Employee rights


    As an employee you have a number of rights which should enable you to do your job in a safe, suitable working environment without being subject to prejudice or discrimination or put in danger of accidents at work or work-related injuries.

    Employees are there to do a job, but it is vital that employers take their responsibilities very seriously and follow the guidelines that are in place to protect workers and encourage them to flourish and thrive in the workplace.

    One of the most common types of personal injury claims is workplace accidents and if you’ve endured a work injury which wasn’t your fault, you could pursue work accident compensation.

    What are my rights at work?

    In terms of health and safety in the workplace, employers have a duty to protect their workforce and to keep them safe. Of course, it is not possible to avoid all accidents and injuries, but the majority of work accidents can be prevented by simply following instructions and policies and keeping an eye on basic issues, such as keeping corridors and stairways clear and putting out signs when a floor is wet.

    • Cleanliness and hygiene
    • Fire safety
    • Temperature
    • First aid
    • Lifting and carrying heavy objects
    • Maintenance of machinery and electrical equipment
    • Hazardous substances
    • Breaks and rest

    Can I make a work accident claim?

    If you believe that you have suffered an injury at work, and it wasn’t your fault, you have the right to make a work accident claim and the Accident Advice Helpline can help you to get compensation. They have many years of experience and the claims process is simple and hassle-free.

    There are some basic requirements to make a claim; the accident or injury must have occurred in the last three years and the accident must have been someone else’s fault. There are also criteria in place regarding the location of the accident and the extent of the injury. If you have suffered industrial deafness at work and are thinking about making a claim, it is a good idea to gather information and evidence together to back up your claim; if you have seen a medical expert, for example, it would be useful to have their professional opinion in writing and if anyone witnessed the accident, their account of the incident would also be very helpful in the claims process.
