The leafy High Peak area of Derbyshire might be the last place you associate with work-related incidents. However, accidents and injuries in the workplace can happen anywhere, from inner-city offices to suburban industrial estates and even in quiet rural areas, where farming and agriculture are central to the local economy.
What could possibly go wrong?
The Borough of High Peak is home to acres of undulating moorland, offering many outdoor jobs such as maintaining the land of the National Trust’s Leicestershire estate. There are also some fantastic historic buildings in the region, which employ many staff including those involve with the upkeep of listed properties, as well as on-site employees such as curators, tour guides and catering staff. However working in this kind of environment can be a risky business as trips, slips and falls can easily occur due to uneven surfaces or when working high up. Whilst most employers do all they can to ensure a safe working environment, sometimes things do go wrong…
