Work is an important part of life. We spend a large part of each weekday at work, and of course, if you work shift patterns, you might spend some of your weekend doing your job.
Your place of work should be somewhere safe for you. When you arrive to begin your shift, you should not have to worry about getting injured during the course of your work.
Sadly, sometimes, injuries do happen. The aftermath of a workplace injury can be fraught with difficulty, but there is one thing that you could to do make things better. Claiming after an accident at work in Kettering could be an option for you.
Your employer’s duty to you
Why should you not have to worry about getting injured at work? Well, it’s obviously good for business if an employer has a workforce that is healthy and able to perform their duties.
It’s also the law. Employers must provide their workers with a safe work environment. How this is achieved will vary from organisation to organisation. However, there will be common elements. Whether it’s a small office or a huge factory, risk assessments will be made, and measures implemented to ensure that risks are minimised.
If your employer doesn’t fulfil their responsibilities, and you get injured, it will be their fault that you suffered that injury, and you could be eligible to claim compensation.
