    Survey shows if people receive safety training at work


    Safety training at work can go a long way towards reducing the risk of accidents in the workplace, and if you’ve been injured in an accident at work, it could be that lack of training was to blame.

    Accident Advice Helpline’s recent survey into accidents at work revealed some interesting results in regards to safety training at work. Although almost 56% of those surveyed had received basic occupational health and safety training and almost 45% received fire safety training, only a quarter of those people surveyed received first aid training. Perhaps most worryingly of all, almost 30% of people who responded to our survey said they had received no health and safety training at their place of work at all.

    Violating health and safety regulations

    If you have been injured in a workplace accident, your employer could be held liable if they have breached health and safety regulations or failed to provide you with safety training at work. For example, if you have suffered manual handling injuries and haven’t been trained in proper manual handling procedures, your employer could be held responsible and ordered to pay you compensation for your pain, suffering and loss of earnings. If you feel your employer has violated health and safety codes, you could report your accident to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) who may carry out their own investigation into safety at your workplace.

    There’s a three-year time limit to make a personal injury claim if somebody else is responsible for your accident, and it doesn’t matter whether you have sustained serious or minor injuries. If you’ve needed to take time off work, we could help you claim compensation for your loss of earnings, helping you to get back on track financially as you recover from your accident.
