Training is vital in almost any job
You may feel that you work in a very safe environment and that an injury at work is therefore not terribly likely but unfortunately there is always the unexpected. Basic health and safety training should be made available by the employer wherever the employees are expected to work because every kind of workplace has its own risks and potential dangers. Obviously, if you work at height or in a place where there is a danger of falling objects, heat, gas or other risk then you take special care and a responsible employer will ensure that everyone behaves well. But in a less obviously dangerous setting such as an office or shop, things may well be not so well managed and this is when accidents happen. Discarded paper on the floor is a serious slip hazard and an unlighted step or dip in the floor can easily cause trips. Employers must make sure that any hazard like this is well marked and drawn to the attention of all staff and visitors to minimize the risk of an injury at work happening.Open Claim Calculator
