    Bath and North East Somerset accident at work compensation

    How to feel comfortable in a more physical job and when to claim accident at work compensation

    If you have always worked in fairly sedentary jobs in the past, making the move to a job which is more physically demanding is bound to be a challenge. However, working in a challenging job is a good thing, as it keeps you interested in what you are doing, and ensures that you find your job exciting and unique. If you are working in a job where you are not challenged and are sat around all day you can easily become disillusioned with your position. If you are making the move into a physically demanding job, here are a few of the things you should be considering.

    • Get plenty of exercise. Not just before you start the job, but during your time off and before and after work, get as much exercise as you can to keep your body built up and more capable of dealing with very physical work. You are much less likely to injure yourself this way, and will have more confidence in yourself at work.
    • Get training. Never allow yourself to start a job if you are not completely confident that you know what you are doing. You should be given training before you start and, if you don’t think your training has been adequate, you should say so.
    • Get help. If you are doing physical work you should be paired with a buddy or a team who can work with you and look out for you. This way you are all watching out for each other and you are less likely to be injured in the course of your job.
    • Wear the right equipment. Physical jobs tend to come with safety equipment to keep you happy and secure. Make sure that you are always wearing this equipment and that it is up to standard and well maintained. Make sure that you report any safety equipment which needs to be repaired or replaced.
