Accident at work in Peterhead

0

Have you been injured in an accident at work in Peterhead? Did the accident happen within the last three years? Was the accident caused by someone else, or perhaps even your employer? If so, you might be eligible to make a claim for personal injury compensation. Accident Advice Helpline has the experience you need to help you do just that.

An accident at work in Peterhead

Accidents at work are perhaps less frequent than they used to be, thanks in part to improved Health & Safety legislation. Such legislation sets out clear guidelines for employees and, importantly, strict responsibilities for employers.

Under this legislation, employers have a duty of care to their employees to ensure that they are safe from harm while at work. This includes taking all reasonable precautions to make sure that the risk of accidents is minimised.

Minimising accidents at work

Employers should ensure that employees are offered, and undertake, adequate training that is appropriate to the tasks they are required to carry out. They should also provide protective clothing if necessary, with instructions on how to use it properly, and should make sure that they have procedures in place for minimising injury should an accident occur.

If it sounds as if these measures relate only to industries such as construction or heavy goods manufacturing, in reality every employer needs to implement these measures to prevent an accident at work in Peterhead, even if the work is office-based or in retail, for example.

Even seemingly minor accidents such as slips, trips and falls are the responsibility of the employer if they haven’t provided measures to prevent spillages, trip hazards like cables or file boxes, or workplace assessments to reduce eye wear or repetitive strain injury.

If you have experienced any kind of injury at work within the last three years that you believe was the fault of your employer or someone else in your workplace, and you’ve seen a medical professional for your injuries, government legislation also entitles you to make a claim for personal injury compensation.
