    Accidents at work

    It would be naïve to expect that every person can be safe from having an accident all of the time. While it would be a wonderful world to live in, it is entirely unrealistic. This is equally so within the work environment, regardless of what that environment is.

    While some environments are undoubtedly more dangerous than others, for example, if you work with heavy or dangerous machinery, or have to work with chemicals or substances which are known to be volatile, then you may well expect that there is an element of risk to what you are doing. However, your employer has a duty of care and responsibility to ensure that everything is done within their logical power to make sure that an accident in Waverley does not happen.

    If an employer does their job and performs the necessary risk assessments, and completes the necessary checks of machinery and equipment, then the vast majority of accidents can actually be avoided.

    Slips and trips

    The most common cause of an accident in Waverley occurring within the work place, regardless of environment, is a slip or trip.

    Such accidents often occur as a result of contaminated floor areas which have not been properly cleaned up from spillages or hazards such as litter. Other poor housekeeping may mean that cables are left lying around, there are insufficient hand rails or guards for people accessing areas within the interior of a building, or even external areas.

    Manual Handling

    Injuries caused as a result of a manual handling accident in Waverley are often another cause of accidents within the work place. If an employer fails to provide members of staff with the suitable training and knowledge to be able to perform lifting and manual handling tasks efficiently and safely, and an accident in Waverley occurs as a result, then they may be regarded as being liable for the accident. If this is the case then you will be able to make a claim against them for compensation.
