Who is to blame for your workplace accident?
No matter what precautions are put in place, workplace accidents can happen anytime under varying circumstances. According to UK law, employers and business owners are responsible for the safety of their employees and any visitors to the work premises. The law requires all businesses to have insurance and conform to the guidelines of the UK Health & Safety regulations. This includes making sure that:
- The workplace is kept in a safe and tidy condition free from hazards.
- Employees are provided with the necessary machinery and tools in good working condition to complete their jobs.
- Employees whose duties include heavy lifting receive proper training to show them how to do this safely.
- Employees are provided with safety aids and equipment such as safety goggles, hard hats, ear plugs/muffs, dust masks, safety gloves, safety boots or high-visibility jackets where applicable.
Also note that you may be eligible to receive compensation if your workplace injury was caused by the negligence of another member of staff.
