If you have been injured in a workplace accident, whether you work on a farm, on a construction site or even in an office, then you may find yourself asking ‘Who’s to blame for my accident?’ It could be that your employer is at fault, particularly if they don’t have an accident prevention plan in place. This doesn’t need to be anything formal, but employers who are concerned about health and safety at work should normally be carrying out regular risk assessments to identify and minimise risks to employees.
Putting in place a plan like this helps them to reduce the risk of accidents happening at work. If you feel that your employer has been negligent, Accident Advice Helpline could help you to make a personal injury claim, provided it has been three years or less since your accident happened.
What can an accident prevention plan to do prevent accidents?
An accident prevention plan can play an important role in identifying risks at work – for example, if you work with hazardous chemicals, the plan would identify this and outline ways to store and use the chemicals safely, such as providing staff with PPE such as gloves and so on. Having a plan like this in place is especially important in more hazardous jobs, for example for those working in the construction industry or in agriculture. If you have sustained minor or serious injuries and work and it turns out that your employer has been negligent, we could help you to make a personal injury claim – and we don’t charge any upfront fees for our services, as our lawyers work on a 100% no-win, no-fee* basis.
