Claiming accident at work compensation in Kirkcaldy and Dysart
For many people it may seem contrived to say make sure you watch where you are walking. The truth is there are thousands of accidents occurring in the United Kingdom every year in the workplace because of problems with poorly laid floors, liquid spillages on the flooring, carpets and wooden flooring lifting away at the edges and a whole host of other issues that can lead to accidents occurring. Accident Advice Helpline have provided help and support to numerous individuals throughout the year when it comes to making claims for accident at work compensation in Kirkcaldy and Dysart. Many of these accidents could have been avoided if time had been taken to ensure the flooring and floored surfaces met with the required health and safety standards, and also proper housekeeping standards were adhered to.
Accidents caused by poor housekeeping at work
Housekeeping is not just the act of keeping your home pristine, but also a term used for the act of ensuring that all surfaces are kept spill and liquid free in the workplace, as well as ensuring that a good standard is met for all employees. In your place of work you should have a designated person whose job it is to ensure that all of these jobs are carried out to a standard that meets with health and safety and hygiene standards, whilst ensuring the chances of accidents are kept to a minimum. Failure to do this is a failure to ensure the safety of all staff members and if you have suffered an accident as a result you may be entitled to accident at work compensation in Kirkcaldy and Dysart.
In the workplace, whether you are simply making your way from A to B or are doing so whilst carrying items with you, it should be the case that all floors upon which you walk are clear of obstacles and liquids. Failure to do this can lead to accidents occurring, which can leave the accident victim suffering from serious injuries and breakages to limbs and other bones. Accident Advice Helpline have helped individuals who have suffered such injuries make successful claims for accident at work compensation in Kirkcaldy and Dysart.
