Workplace accidents can happen so quickly, yet have a devastating effect on those involved. If Health and Safety Regulations are ignored, then employees are at risk of sustaining painful and long-lasting injuries through no fault of their own.
It is every employer’s legal obligation to ensure that their staff are safe while they are carrying out their duties. They should ensure that any machinery or equipment is maintained to a high standard, and that all employees have access to any necessary protective clothing. It is also vital that all members of staff receive adequate training so that they are aware of any potential hazards in the workplace, and how they can avoid them.
