Employers in the UK have a legal duty to ensure that their employees are safe while they are at work. They should make sure the work environment is a safe place not just for the staff, but also for any visitors to the business, such as delivery persons or customers. If they fail in this duty, and someone is injured because of their negligence, they may have to deal with an accident lawyer in Islington if a compensationclaim is made against them.
Health and safety for staff
Health and safety is an important part of any business. The governments watchdog for these matters is the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). They have a very user friendly website, where all the rules and regulations are available, no matter what trade or profession the business is.
Employers really have no excuse for not putting the required health and safety measure in place, and allowing their employees to be injured in accidents that were not their fault.
Very serious injuries happen in accidents at work, some industries being more dangerous than others. Farming has one of the worst records for deaths and serious injuries, closely followed by the construction and warehousing industries.
In you are one of the unfortunate victims of a work place injury, you could be entitled to compensation, and an accident lawyer in Islington will be able to help you.
