    Aspects of health and safety at work


    Accidents at work are a common and everyday occurrence. You may think of work accidents as things that happen on construction sites, and of course, those sorts of accidents are prevalent. However, we see accidents at work in a huge variety of industries. In our years in operation, we have treated hairdressers, taxi drivers, bank clerks, teachers, butchers, library assistants and lawyers. There is no limit to the variety of accidents that people have at work, especially if certain aspects of health and safety at work are not properly followed.

    Monitoring aspects of health and safety at work

    It is your employer’s responsibility to monitor aspects of health and safety at work. In larger organisations there will generally be one person who is responsible for the health and safety of all employees. If you feel that health and safety has been breached in your place of employment, and you have had an accident, then you will need to make an accident claim for compensation for your injuries.

    Make your accident claim

    Many people don’t bother to claim compensation after an accident at work, on the grounds that they will lose their job. This is not something you should worry about. It is illegal to fire someone just because they’ve made an accident claim against their company.

    If you are treated fairly by your employer and receive the best treatment and care after your accident, as well as full pay, then maybe you don’t need to claim, it’s entirely up to you, but if you’re losing wages, or your quality of life has been affected, of course you should, and that’s where we can help you.
