The biggest dangers to watch out for in venues and how to claim accident at work compensation
If you are working in a venue, or even if you are simply a customer, it is always helpful to know what the dangers are before you start moving around, so that you can spot potential hazards quickly and avoid them. Knowing how to avoid a hazard is one of the best ways that you can be safe in your workplace or night out, or even simply be prepared for dealing with these issues if they do crop up.
If you work in a venue, your employer should also have measures put in place to protect you from any dangers, and if they don’t you may be able to claim accident at work compensation in Lewisham if you are injured.
- Darkness. Oddly enough, it is not other people but the darkness in venues which is most likely to cause issues. Trying to navigate around the room in darkness is tricky as there may be uneven floors or obstacles you need to work around when you can’t see them very well.
- Customers. Drunk, violent or just angry customers can cause problems in a venue, and may pose a risk to both the staff and to other customers. If there are any customers who do appear to be causing issues for people, they need to be removed.
- Equipment. Venues are often full of plenty of technical equipment, most of which will be heavy and/or electrical. These items are more likely to pose a risk to the people that are working with them directly, but if they are not looked after carefully they could also injury customers.
- Glass. If you serve glass bottles at a venue, or have a venue where glass may be present, the risk of broken glass is very serious. It is always better not to have glass present at any venue where there might be music and dancing, so that people can’t break it either deliberately or by accident.
