    Accident Solicitor Shepperton

    The suburban town of Shepperton in Surrey is famous for its film studio and production facilities. While many of the world’s best‐loved films have been made here, employment options in the town are many and varied and encompass a wide economic base.

    Accidents in the workplace

    While accidents in workplaces in Shepperton are relatively rare, they do occur from time to time. Some accidents occur more frequently than others, including:

    Slips, trips and falls

    Almost one-third of all workplace accidents result from slips, trips and falls. A vast number of slips, trips and falls occur in wet conditions and can be attributed to bad housekeeping, where substances or objects are left on the floor. Slips, trips and falls can seem minor but in some cases, they can cause serious head injuries, broken bones and even death in the case of falls from heights.

    All employers should take reasonable care to ensure:

    • Flooring is in good condition.
    • Trailing cables are not a trip hazard.
    • Flooring is cleaned regularly using suitable cleaning materials and signposted when wet.
    • Adequate hand and guard rails and sufficient lighting are always in place.

    Manual handling accidents

    Manual handling is a term used to describe any task involving lifting, lowering, pulling, pushing, carrying, holding or moving objects. When manual handling tasks are performed incorrectly, musculoskeletal injuries, such as back and neck strains, can result.

    • Sufficient rest periods are provided.
    • Health and safety training covers correct manual handling techniques.

    Electrical accidents

    Electric shocks can cause fatalities and severe burns.

    All employers should take reasonable care to ensure:

    • All electrical equipment is safe for use.
    • Health and safety training covers the use of electrical equipment and promotes safe working practices.
