You’ve likely heard of the Brecon Beacons, so it may not surprise you to find out Brecon is very near there, just north of the mountain range itself. It is part of Powys, and lies towards the far southern end of this region of Wales. It is home to approximately 8,250 people. It has a long history and even today parts of the original town walls can be seen. It would be unlikely you’d need to claim Brecon accident at work compensation if you work in this part of Wales, but it could come in useful to know why you might claim – just in case.
Work compensation claims are generally paid in cases where an employee has been injured through negligence. This will normally be because the employer has been found to be negligent. The only exception might potentially be if the worker was out driving in a company vehicle and another driver caused an accident.
How safe are working environments today?
They are actually reassuringly safe in most cases. Every workplace should be assessed with an eye on health and safety – this is called a risk assessment. It means an individual will be able to look for any potential risks or hazards that might lead to an accident if they were left as they are.
Since the vast majority of employers do everything in their power to prevent accidents, it makes sense that injuries are kept to an absolute minimum. However, it is also right that if you are hurt while doing your job, you should have a chance to find some proper legal advice to determine the position you are in.
Talking about compensation isn’t going to be the first thing that comes to mind when you suffer an injury. The first thing to do will be to focus on dealing with your injuries. Do make sure your accident is recorded in the accident book, and that you get first aid on-site if required. This will all contribute to a record of what happened.
