Proper equipment reduces the risk of work accidents

Regardless of your job, proper equipment is vital. Whether you’re an admin clerk with a chair that doesn’t elevate you to the right height, or a lorry driver with faulty brakes on the vehicle, improper equipment can cause work accidents. This can be devastating for an employer, as the injured worker can file a faulty product claim.

Although the tools in one job may pose more serious hazards than others, all jobs need the right things. For instance, it may be obvious that a fireman requires a working hose and heatproof clothing, but the office worker needs the right size chair and desk to minimise the risk of repetitive strain injury or neck problems. Some accidents at work may be more painful or life threatening than others, but each one is serious and threatens a person’s ability to work.

Indeed, UK law covers any work accidents that weren’t your fault, and any of the following can result in work accident compensation:

  • Trips and slips
  • Falls – from the same level or an elevated level i.e. a ladder
  • Equipment falling on top of you
  • Faulty equipment
  • Illness or disease through workplace exposure
  • Road traffic accident

The list is non-exhaustive, but indicates that any injury sustained because of work that wasn’t the injured party’s fault can be claimed against. You can even file a car crash claim if you were sitting at traffic lights in a work vehicle and another driver crashes into the back of you.
