Quite rightly, you would expect that your workplace offers a safe environment, where you can relax without accidents happening. However, accidents can happen anywhere and quite often, they do occur in the workplace.
It is important to take care of your own safety in the workplace but your employer also has a responsibility to ensure you are safe. If you are involved in an accident and you you end up injured as a result, you will need help with claiming against an employer in Northamptonshire. There are many reasons why you may become involved in an accident and these are just some of them:
Lack of training
If your employer fails to provide you with training to carry out your job effectively, you could end up injured. This is particularly the case if your job involves lifting heavy or awkward goods. A lack of training can cause muscle pain and can lead to injuries. If this happens to you, you should consider making a claim for compensation.
It is important that your workstation is effective for being able to carry out your job. If you feel any discomfort while working, you should alert your manager straightaway. If they fail to do anything about it and you end up injured, you may want to get some help with claiming against an employer in Northamptonshire.
There should be signs to alert you to any potential risks in the workplace, such as spillages in the kitchen or any specific obstructions. Without signs, there is always the potential for accidents to happen.
Are you overworked in your job and not getting enough breaks? If this happens, it can lead to injuries. For instance, some people may suffer with repetitive strain injury or may be tired and more susceptible to taking a tumble.
Your employer has a responsibility to ensure you are not overworked or stressed and, if they fail to do this, they could be held responsible for any injuries which occur as a result.
