Epsom is famous as a town, thanks to its association with Epsom salts. Ewell is a lesser-known town that is also in Surrey, but together they form a local government district known by the two names. While people work in all manner of industries and businesses in Surrey, few ever have the need to fight for accident at work compensation in Epsom and Ewell. This is simply because the standards in the workplace today are exceptionally good.
It probably won’t surprise you to learn that most injuries caused in some manner in the workplace are minor. However, that doesn’t make them any less painful or worrying to experience. They can still interfere with your daily life and in many cases they should never have happened in the first place.
Are some accidents at work more common than others?
Definitely. Slips and trips are probably the most common injuries among all workplaces, but the job you do and the working environment you are in will have an impact on the types of injuries that are going to be more common for you.
For example, workers who regularly undertake manual handling tasks are more likely to suffer from potential musculoskeletal injuries. Those who work with electricity are at potential risk of suffering an electric shock. These are just some examples, although it is always potentially possible to suffer another type of accident. For instance, someone working in a warehouse could suffer an electric shock if they come into contact with exposed wires that should have been safely tucked out of the way and covered so no one could touch them. It does however give you an idea of what might potentially happen in any working situation or environment.
