What can we understand about an accident in Merton? Every activity carries a potential risk and a probability of causing an injury in the course of being undertaken, whether at work, at school or on the road. A personal injury can be defined as a physical or psychological injury, disease or illness to a person, which sometimes could be fatal. We can distinguish some types of risk. They can be individual, social and also technical. The reasons for an accident at work can be technical, organisational, sanitary and hygienic, or psychological.
During an accident, a person is affected by factors that are hazardous to their health. All industrial accidents and occupational diseases are subject to investigation, so for this purpose the employer has to ensure safe and healthy working conditions for their employees. For all workers, social insurance is obligatory. Any injured worker who was in an accident that was not their fault may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
