An area of the United Kingdom with a large amount of industrial and factory jobs, South Gloucestershire has high-risk work environments in which accidents are a constant danger.
If you work in a high risk environment then it is the responsibility of your employer to ensure that you and your co-workers are not injured.
Your employers have a legal requirement to keep you safe
When someone runs a business, they are legally obligated to ensure that sufficient health and safety measures are put in place to ensure the safety of their staff.
If those who employ you fail to do this, and you are injured as a result, then you are entitled to compensation.
