    Survey shows why people feel in danger at work

    Where do you work? Whether you’re employed on a building site, in a shop or in an office, you shouldn’t ever feel you are in danger at work. Accident Advice Helpline commissioned a survey to find out more about workplace accidents, and the results are in. We asked people why they feel in danger at work and worryingly over 40% of those surveyed said they felt that their workplace violates or doesn’t meet safety standards. Just over 26% of people surveyed said the nature of their work was dangerous, with a further 24% saying the nature of their workplace was dangerous (for example a factory or warehouse). But perhaps most worrying of all is that over one-fifth of those surveyed said their line manager or safety representative was unwilling to make safety changes.

    What can you do?

    If you feel in danger at work, you should discuss your concerns with your manager. They may be able to offer additional training or ensure that faulty equipment or machinery is repaired to make your workplace safer. If you have concerns about any of your colleagues, it’s also a good idea to speak to your line manager who can address this. But if you’ve been injured in a workplace accident and your employer could have done more to keep you safe, you could find yourself eligible to claim personal injury compensation.

    For example if you’ve reported faulty machinery in the factory you work in but it hasn’t been repaired, and you suffer an eye injury from flying debris, your employer could be held liable and ordered to pay you compensation.

    Claiming the compensation you deserve

    You deserve to be compensated if your employed has put you in danger at work. This could include not providing you with the training you need to carry out your job safely, as well as things like failing to maintain equipment and machinery – even not giving you the required rest breaks could put you at risk. But if it’s been three years or less since your accident, you can make a 100% no win, no fee* claim with Accident Advice Helpline.
