An accident at work in Northampton, just like accidents at work in any other part of the country, are often preventable if only employers followed the health and safety guidelines that are there to try to reduce the numbers of accidents that happen in workplaces.
Some people moan about the amount of health and safety measures there are, saying they are costly and restrictive, but just let one of the moaners be a victim of an accident at work in Northampton, and they will soon change their tune.
Trying to prevent an accident at work in a Northampton office
How easy it is to prevent an accident at work in Northampton depends on which industry you work in, some are far more dangerous than others. Construction, farming, and warehousing are the worst percentage wise for serious accidents and deaths at work, but they are not the only industries that accidents happen in.
Most people would consider an office environment to be safe, but accidents happen in offices every day, and they are a typical example where most of them could have been prevented if health and safety measure had been complied with.
Some of the accidents that happen in offices are caused by:Open Claim Calculator
- Trailing wires
- Loose carpets or damaged flooring
- Electrical faults
- Lack of room
- Repetitive actions
All of these things just need correcting to prevent the accidents and very nasty injuries that can result from them. If a worker trips over a trailing wire for instance, and then bangs their head on the corner of a desk as they fall, the consequences could be dire. Electric shocks in offices are as bad as electric shocks anywhere else, and the resulting injuries just as severe.
