Accidents happen every day to blameless victims who did not expect them. An accident at work in Southampton is no exception to this, as victims don’t normally get injured on purpose. Workplace accidents are a bit different in the respect that you are supposed to be protected from accidents while you are at work; there is nobody to protect you if you are on the roads or in public places, that is down to you to take care of yourself.
To some extent, employees have to trust their employer to get it right, and to make sure that all health and safety rules are complied with. Although if an employee sees a potential hazard, they should tell their boss straight away.
If you have told your boss of a danger and they have done nothing about it, you should report them to the Health and Safety Executive. It might seem a bit harsh reporting them to an official body, but they could be risking lives, and what other dangers could there be that you have not spotted?
Signs everywhere to avoid an accident at work in Southampton
There are some jobs where there will always be a risk of danger, by the nature of the work. But if there is any risk at all, even for something as simple as a step where you would not expect one, there must be warning signs, in easily understood language, to make everyone aware of the potential risk.
The result of an accident at work in Southampton can be devastating for the victim and their family, and if there is any way to avoid this happening, then whatever it takes needs to be done.
If you are injured in an accident at work in Southampton, you could be entitled to compensation because of the negligence of your employer.
