How to avoid injuries at work and how to make an accident at work claim if something does go wrong
It is always important for you to be careful when you are at work, so as to avoid injuries. Most workplaces have their own hazards which need avoiding, and for the most part all employees will be offered training and support to help them to avoid these hazards as they go about their day to day life.
If you are injured at work then you may be able to make an accident at work claim in Perth and Kinross against your employer, but it is always preferable to avoid getting into an accident in the first place.
- Read up on health and safety. Your employer should be able to provide you with health and safety regulations that you can look over when you first start in your job. Knowing these will help you to do your job correctly and avoid injuring yourself.
- Let your employer know about problems. If there are any problems or hazards that you come across whilst doing your job, you should let your employer know about these right away. You may have been the first person to notice and the next person to find the problem may be injured by it.
- Be careful. If you are bored of doing something, or are getting tired, you may skip certain steps or ignore the health and safety rules and regulations, which can lead to a serious accident. Try to stay motivated and be as careful as you can at all times.
- Be professional. Being silly or playing around in your job can easily lead to accidents and any injuries you sustain through doing this will be entirely your fault. Don’t cave to pressure from other employees and make sure that you always work professionally.
