All employers are required to do whatever they can to order to ensure that the workplace is safe and the risk of accidents is kept as minimal as possible. The type of things that employers need to do is to test machinery on a regular basis and keep it well maintained. All employees also need to be trained in how to operate the machinery and they need to be provided with any safety equipment that they will need in order to be able to do their job safely.

Both employers and employees are required to conduct regular risk assessments to ensure that there are no new hazards arisen and that all required safety precautions are in place.

If the employer fails to take these safety measures and an accident happens then they will be in serious trouble as they have failed to comply with Health and Safety Regulations. If you have been injured as a result of the accident then you will have strong grounds for claiming compensation, especially if the accident could have been avoided.
