    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    South Holland car accident

    Any employed person in the UK should have a safe place to work, and if this is not the case and they become injured because of an accident at work, they are entitled to make a personal injury claim, using the South Holland car accident lawyers from Accident Advice Helpline.    

    Your employer has a legal duty to ensure that your health and safety is protected while you are at work, and there are rules and regulations that are set out, so your boss can follow these and all staff members should be safe. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) are the people who set these rules and regulations and they also monitor them, making sure employers are doing what they should.

    If they fail to comply and someone is injured because of their negligence, HSE can prosecute them, and the victim can use South Holland car accident lawyers to claim compensation.

    The South Holland car accident lawyers and some of the rules and regulations

    Most employers do comply with health and safety rules, many of which are common sense. Just some of the general rules are:

    • Have a health and safety policy and make sure it is implemented by all staff
    • Keep walks free of spillages and obstructions
    • Make sure staff have proper breaks
    • Provide free of charge any protective clothing or equipment that is needed for staff to do their job safely
    • Keep a record of all accidents in an accident book, no matter how trivial they may seem
    • Report serious accidents to the HSE so they can investigate
    • Carry out risk assessments and act on any findings
    • Put procedures in place, and make sure all employees know what they are, in case of an emergency situation
    • Carry out regular fire drills
    • Ensure staff have enough space to work comfortably without having to constantly twist and turn
    • Ensure that all plant and equipment is in proper working order and that any safety devices needed are fitted
    • Train staff to use the plant and equipment and make sure they are aware of any risks
    • Do not let untrained staff use the plant and equipment

    There will always be employers who put profit before safety, and they may well end up by losing all they have made in heavy fines, if an employee is injured at work because of their negligence.
