Did you search for an accident at work compensation calculator?
It’s a fair bet you’ve had an accident at work and think you might be able to make a compensation claim against your employer. So, what do you need to know? Accidents at work are subject to certain procedures under Health and Safety Regulations:
- You should have immediately reported your accident to the nominated safety officer in your company, or to a senior member of staff.
- Companies with more than ten employees, or where the accident has resulted in death or serious injury, the incident must be reported to the Health and Safety Executive, the regulatory body in the UK for health and safety legislation.
- Dangerous industries, such as those working with explosives, hazardous materials or equipment, such as electricity generating, or nuclear plants, have additional procedures to follow.

That’s serious for you, because you spend all day on your desktop and you can’t afford to be off work, but now you are.
