Situated on the north bank of the River Ribble in Lancashire, Preston is a large city and urban settlement. It became a city in 2000 as part of the 50th jubilee of Queen Elizabeth 2nd.
In the early 1900s the place was a booming town industrially, linked to the cotton trade. That however collapsed in 1918 at the end of World War 1, the knock on effect being a sudden decrease of population in the area. The economy picked up a few years later with the arrival of firms manufacturing electrical goods.
Working conditions were a lot different in those days, and health and safety was not a real concern. But things have changed a lot since then. There are now strict rules and regulations in relation to safety at work that employers have to adhere to. If these guidelines are not in place and an employee is injured then the employer is liable to pay compensation.
Let’s say you are working on a building site in Preston and you are not provided with protective equipment. If you are injured then your employer could not only have to pay you compensation, but could be prosecuted for unsafe working practices. It is up to them to ensure that you have the correct safety equipment that is in good condition.
