Have you suffered an accident in East Riding of Yorkshire while at work?
Although many employers take the health and safety of their staff very seriously, some companies and firms still don’t follow the relevant guidelines when it comes to health and safety. While most people know that companies must provide safety materials when employees perform dangerous job roles, the health and safety legislation actually extends much further.
For example, there are regulations which govern how many people can work in a certain space, how many bathrooms must be installed in the company’s premises, and even regulations that govern what temperature a working environment must be.
If you’re concerned that your employer is failing to ensure the safety of its employees, you may want to discuss this with your line manager or your human resources department. By bringing the issue up before an accident occurs, you could prevent someone from suffering a serious injury or even being killed in the workplace.
Unfortunately, many health and safety issues don’t arise until after an accident in East Riding of Yorkshire has occurred. While this may encourage employers to take a different approach to health and safety, this doesn’t necessarily benefit the person who has already been injured.
If you’ve been harmed at work or you’ve suffered an accident in East Riding of Yorkshire, you may be able to take action against your employers. If you can show that the accident in East Riding of Yorkshire wasn’t your fault, your employers may be held liable for your injuries, and it may be possible for you to claim compensation against them.
If you’re worried that making a claim will result in you being sacked, you needn’t be. Providing your claim is genuine, your employers won’t be able to treat you badly simply because you’ve made a claim against them.
In many instances, managers and CEOs haven’t set out to hurt anyone, and the accident in East Riding of Yorkshire may have simply arisen because of an oversight. In such cases, they will normally be willing to take responsibility for the accident and ensure that it cannot happen again in the workplace.
