Accident at Work claims UK legislation
Accidents at work are, sadly, still common even though UK legislation, enshrined in the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, has been in place for almost four decades. On top of legislation, the Health and Safety Executive offers practical guidance and services to employers, covering all industries.
In other words, employers have no excuse for allowing accidents to happen in your workplace. Health and Safety is not new and it is not optional. If you have been unfortunate enough to suffer an accident at work you could claim compensation that is due to you. If you don’t force your employer to change their ways, you might not be the last employee to get hurt.
