Do you work as a babysitter? You’ll know it can be a demanding role to take, even though you may only do it for a few hours at a time. It takes a certain person to be a successful babysitter, and if you enjoy the role you will probably find it very rewarding indeed. However, you won’t focus on the best parts of the job if something happens and you end up wondering who’s to blame for your babysitter accident.
As a babysitter, you are likely to visit someone’s home to care for their child while they are not there. They are your employers – even if on a casual basis – and as such you will usually visit their home to look after their young child while they are out. This could be only for an hour or so, or for the whole day or evening.
How safe is this sort of work?
Normally, this kind of job is very safe to do and very enjoyable too, if you’re cut out for it! Some people wouldn’t be good at the job as you need to be good with kids and be happy to interact with them and to make sure they are safe at all times.
With that said, the people you are babysitting for also have a duty to make sure you are safe while you are working for them. If you were injured through no fault of your own and they were potentially to blame, the opportunity to make a compensation claim for those injuries might be present.
