Pointing the finger of blame at your employer is never an easy or comfortable thing to do, especially when you’ve been injured at work. But it could be the right thing to do. A workplace injury could take on one of many forms. You could be a construction worker who has been forced into doing an unsafe job, you might be a factory worker who has been exposed to harmful chemicals or you might work at a job that has left you with repetitive strain injury.

What exactly constitutes employer negligence?
In any workplace, the employer is responsible for the safety and wellbeing of his or her staff, contractors and visitors. It is therefore up to them to make sure that all necessary machines, tools and equipment is maintained to an optimum standard and that the workplace is kept in a perpetually clean and tidy condition. All employees must be provided with suitable workstations and everywhere should be free from hazards with doors/gates clear from obstructions. All employees whose job descriptions include lifting and moving heavy objects should receive proper training and if there is any kind of specialist safety gear required in order to do your job safely, it should be supplied for you.Open Claim Calculator
If an injury befalls you that is a direct result of your employer failing to adhere to any of the above precautions, it is technically their fault and you will be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim.
