    Canterbury claims


    All employers in the country have a legal duty to make sure that all of their staff members are protected while they are at work, not matter what their trade or profession is. They should make sure your work environment is safe, clean and tidy so you can carry out your duties without being in any danger. Failure to do this could mean them having to face an injury lawyer from Accident Advice Helpline with Canterbury claims for compensation.

    Protective Clothing to help avoid Canterbury claims

    One of the duties invalid in safeguarding your health and safety is for employers to provide, free of any charge, any protective clothing and equipment that is needed in your job. It has been proven that this can refuse the risk of serious injury in you are inured in an accident at work, and you as an employee have a duty to wear or use whatever they provide.  This could just stop the need for you to be making Canterbury claims for compensation.

    Tidiness can help

    Keeping walkways free of spillages and obstructions can prevent many of the workplace accidents, the most common of them being slips, trip and falls.  As an employee you have a duty to keep your work area free and clear so that you do not cause someone else to have an accident at work.

    Keeping machinery in good condition

    Employers have to make sure that all machinery and equipment is in proper working order, and that staff are properly trained to use it. As an employee you have a duty to stop using and report any faults on any equipment and machinery and you should refuse to operate anything for which you have not had adequate training.

    Taking proper breaks

    Your employer should make sure that you take proper breaks in your working day, and as an employee you have a duty to make sure you take them. A tired employee is much more likely to have an accident at work than one who has been rested.
