    Accident at work claim in Weymouth and Portland


    There are many different types of accidents that can happen in a work place. Obviously the type of accident will depend on the working environment but nothing can predict the severity of an accident and the impact it can have on a person’s life. In 2009/2010 statistic from a survey done by the Health and Safety executive showed that there were 233, 00 non fatal injuries in the workplace.

    Types of accidents at work include:

    • Trips, falls or slips – these are probably one of the most common accidents at work and cause over 14,000 injuries each year just in the U.K. Falls from a height can leave people with very serious injuries and even result in death.
    • Heavy lifting – these can lead to fractures which occur from moving heavy items, pulled muscles and even spinal damage.
    • Faulty Equipment   if the equipment is not correctly maintained and has faults this can cause injuries and even death especially if it is the safety equipment that is faulty.
    • Working with Hazardous materials/chemicals – this can lead to a person suffering from illnesses from breathing in these substances.

    As an employer they have a duty of care to their employee and to follow the correct regulations regarding safety. Equipment should be checked and everyone should be fully trained in using the equipment and health and safety.
