    Accident at work compensation in Chorley


    How can an employee claim accident at work compensation in Chorley?

    Any accident at work needs to be looked into by the employer to ascertain why it happened, who was at fault, and how likely it is to happen again. The employer has a duty of care to all employees, to do what they can to ensure that employees are working in a safe and healthy environment at all times.

    If you believe that your work environment is not safe then measures must be taken to make it safe before anyone is injured, or if an accident has already occurred, before anyone else is injured. There are things that you can do immediately after an accident to help the situation as well.

    • Deal with the injured party. The very first thing that you want to do when someone has been injured is to tend to them and ensure that they are okay. Call an ambulance if one is needed and otherwise just make sure that they get the first aid they need to recover well.
    • Find out what happened. Speak to the injured party if they are able to talk to you right away, so that they can give their account. You should then speak to any witnesses to see if their accounts match up, and have written records of what happened should you need these in the future.
    • Fix the problem. Whatever caused the accident needs to be fixed or removed right away, so that there is no risk of it causing further injury to anyone else. If it cannot be fixed right away, you should at least remove it so that no one else is close to it.
    • Talk to the team. Let the team know immediately what has happened and what caused it, so that everyone in the workplace knows the situation. This will help to prevent further accidents, as well as cut off any office gossip before it starts.
