Accident Advice Helpline can give you help with NHS claims and accidents advice
The NHS is a national treasure and most of us will rely on the magnificent service it provides at some time in our lives. When we think of the NHS we picture the medical staff working hard to save lives. Behind the scenes however is an army of support workers including clerical staff, cooks, cleaners and porters.
Like any other employer, the NHS has a responsibility to its staff to keep them safe in the workplace. They do this very well but much of the support work is contracted out these days to companies who tender for the business of catering and cleaning etc.
If you’ve been injured in an accident in the workplace that wasn’t your fault and need some NHS claims and accidents advice we can help.
Who is your employer?
If you work in a large hospital it’s quite likely that private companies provide some of the support services. If you’ve had an accident, it’s important to establish who is responsible for your health and safety at work. Check your contract of employment which should give you these details.
Whatever your role you should have been given training to help you avoid injury to yourself. If you’re working in a busy kitchen you need to be aware of the risks of burns and scalds and trips and slips from spillages.
If your role is a domestic one then you may work with hazardous chemicals which could cause burns and skin irritations. It’s important to wear personal protection equipment when it’s supplied.
NHS claims and accidents advice is available from us if you’re unsure how to proceed.
