Types of workplace accident
What constitutes a workplace accident? Practically anything could happen in a workplace, but some common situations include:
- Accidents caused by defective equipment
- Manual lifting accidents
- Falls from height (e.g. scaffolding and ladders)
- Slips, trips and falls
- Burns and scalds
If you have been injured in an accident at work, you could be entitled to start a claim and seek compensation. That’s because it’s your employer’s responsibility to make sure you’re safe in the workplace, and if you get injured, they are failing in their duty.
Worried about making a claim?
Some employees are reluctant to make claims for their accident at work injury as they are worried about repercussions.
However, there’s no need to worry, because the law protects employees who make claims. It would be unlawful for an employer to dismiss an employee for making a compensation claim, or to discriminate against them upon their return to work.
Furthermore, employers are obliged to hold an employer’s liability insurance policy, which ensures that if an employee suffers injury in an accident at work, the cost of any compensation paid to them will be covered. The employer’s funds wouldn’t be affected.
