One of the worst things that can happen to us is getting fired from our place of work. Whether or not it was our dream job or just something to pay the bills, no one wants to get fired and it can come as quite a shock. If you were involved in an accident at work which led to an injury this can be equally distressing. So if you were injured at work then fired you may be feeling at a loss of what to do next but if you don’t believe the accident was your fault then speaking to an expert advisor at Accident Advice Helpline for free may be the best call you make today.
How do workplace accidents happen?
Workplace accidents are kept to a minimum due to prevention and proper implementation of Health and Safety law. Employers have a duty of care to their employees and should actively strive to keep their team safe. Workplace accidents can happen for a number of reasons, some of which include:
- A careless or negligent attitude from your manager
- Poor housekeeping leading to slips, trips or falls
- Inadequate training
- A working environment which encourages dangerous games or pranks
- Not wearing the appropriate protective clothing
- Not using machinery or vehicles in the correct manner
- Lifting or moving heavy items incorrectly
- Poor instruction or leadership
