    Being Injured Is Not Part of the Job


    Most of us go to work in order to pay the bills and put food on our family table, these are the facts. But what happens when we have an accident whilst at work, and as a result we cannot return to the workplace for an extended period of time? Many employees face a very harsh reality and lose future earnings as a result, and some may even lose their jobs. We work hard and we do so because we place sufficient trust in our employers to provide a safe environment for us. If the unthinkable should happen and we have a workplace accident that is not our fault, what happens next?

    No workplace is totally safe

    Accidents happen in every walk of life, they always have and they always will. But if we safeguard our working practices and ensure that the environment is free of obvious hazards, those accidents will be few and far between. Your employer is responsible for ensuring that your workplace is free of potential hazards that pose a risk for every single employee. They are also supposed to offer appropriate health and safety training for each employee in the workplace. The combination of these 2 safeguards will ensure that very few accidents should take place in your working environment. If either of these aspects are neglected, the consequences can be catastrophic. As an employee, you are also duty bound to report any potential danger in the workplace. If your employer fails to heed this warning, they can be liable for any accident that occurs thereafter.

    But it wasn’t your fault

    Just imagine that you are carrying a small box of documents in your office, and you trip over a loose electrical cable. You fall over and as you hit the floor, you fracture your wrist rather badly. You have to go to hospital and are unable to return to work for several weeks. Whose fault is this? Well, your employer should ensure that the floor and any walkway is clear of obstructions at all times. Because of your injury, you may miss out on a holiday, or perhaps any number of working opportunities. If this scenario is familiar, you could be able to claim for financial compensation.
