An accident at work in Tameside can happen either instantly or over a period of time but if any of the accidents which take place are through no fault of the injured party there could be a claim facing the company.
Workstations hold many hazards all on their own. A sedentary lifestyle can lead to various long developing injuries such as repetitive strain injury, RSI, and computer eye strain. Although there are measures in order to help prevent these conditions setting in many employers do not adhere to regulations due to various reasons.
In addition to the negligence of the welfare and safety of employees other hazards in the work place involve electrical equipment. Like any other substance over time electrical equipment can show signs of wear and tear. If it is not tested and checked on a regular basis there could be issues developing which are not being noticed and can then later result in an accident at work in Tameside.
