Although the number of work place accidents has reduced in recent years, there are still far too many innocent victims injured through no fault of their own. This is sometimes because of poor health and safety practices in the workplace, often because the employer cannot be bothered to put the correct health and safety measures in place. Sometimes it is because the employer puts profit before the wellbeing of their staff. These employers deserve to have personal injury claims made against them, and our accident lawyer in Broxbourne will do all they can to help the innocent victims who have been injured in an accident at work.
Employees need to be aware of health and safety
There are situations where an employer does everything they should. All the health and safety measures are in place, and there is a health and safety policy. It does not matter how good the employer is though, if employees do not follow the rules they should.
Some employers look on a breach of health and safety as serious misconduct, punishable by instant dismissal. This is because by not obeying the rules that have been put in place, the employee could be endangering the safety of others, not just themselves.
Carrying out risk assessments reduce the risk of accidents at work
One of the first things employers should do is to carry out a risk assessment. Whether they employee a specialist firm to do this, or do it themselves does not matter. In some way they need to identify all potential hazards, and often the employees are the best people to involve, as they can be more aware of any problems
Once they have found the dangers, they need to do all the can to reduce any risks relating to them, which in turn will reduce the risk of employees being injured through no fault of their own and needing to use our accident lawyer in Broxbourne.
