    Accident at work in Aberdeenshire


    If you’ve had an accident at work in Aberdeenshire that has resulted in you sustaining a personal injury, you may be considering launching a claim for compensation against your employer. However, in order to do so, you must first ensure that the blame for the accident that caused the injury is attributable to someone other than yourself.

    Repetitive strain injury

    In some instances, it isn’t one specific accident that causes an injury. For example, with a repetitive strain injury, it’s some sort of physical action that you do repeatedly whilst carrying out your duties that eventually causes the injury. Typical injuries of this nature include things like carpal tunnel syndrome that is often experienced by office workers who use computers all the time, or a rotary cuff injury that might be sustained by an employee who is constantly involved with manual handling.

    The right to work in a hazard-free environment

    Whatever the nature of your employment, you’ve a right to expect to carry out your duties in a risk-free environment. It also means that your employer has a duty of care towards you to make you aware of any risks that may be involved in the performance of your duties and to advise you of any methods of best practice that you should adopt in order to minimise risk. If your employer has failed to do this, then you could be entitled to instigate a claim should you suffer an injury through an accident at work in Aberdeenshire.

    The importance of training, and following best practice

    Any type of manual handling can put employees at risk. Making an employee aware of this is part of any employer’s responsibility, as is ensuring that an employee is also given appropriate training; for example in the correct way to carry out a manual lift. But it is also the responsibility of the employee to ensure that any training given is correctly followed. Workers should never feel they have to disregard best practice through pressure from management.
