Have you had an accident in Swindon whilst at work?
If you have had an accident in Swindon at work, which you don’t think was your fault, then Accident Advice Helpline may be able to help you make a claim for compensation for the personal injury you have suffered.
Provided your accident in Swindon occurred within the last three years then we will be able to help you start a claim against the person, or people, you believe are responsible for your accident.
One of the main reasons that Accident Advice Helpline is able to help people recover compensation after they have been injured in a work based accident in Swindon is because in the vast majority of cases employers are liable for the accidents that have occurred.
All employers have a legal duty of care to ensure that people who work for them are kept safe from harm whilst at work. While not all accidents can be avoided, the most can, and it is important that an employer does all they can to ensure that this is the case.
This includes ensuring that all members of staff are suitably trained, and provided with the correct and most up to date information to do their jobs properly. As well as providing the correct training to avoid an accident in Swindon from occurring it is also important that all staff are aware of who is able to do what within the work environment. There is a great danger when people assume that another member of staff can perform a task without supervision, when in fact they can’t. Occasionally managers put pressure on employees to do tasks they haven’t been trained to do, and this can have devastating consequences.
If your work environment is potentially dangerous then it is also important that you are provided with suitable personal protection equipment. Such equipment, perhaps in the form of boots or hard hats, can help reduce the severity of an injury which may have occurred if there has been an accident in Swindon. Equally, the equipment should be inspected on a regular basis to make sure that it remains fit for purpose, and will not pose an additional risk to employees.
