Although workplace personal injury claims are relatively common, they rarely focus on training issues. A workplace can be as safe as is possible, but there will still be a risk of employees being injured in accidents that were not their fault if they have not been provided with the proper training. I
f you’ve been injured in an accident that was not your fault that came about due to a training issue, claiming against an employer in Tameside might well be an option worth looking into.
A lack of training and claiming against an employer in Tameside
It’s likely that you might have been asked to sit through some basic heath and safety training at work. Many employees don’t take this as seriously as they might, but it’s provided for a reason. Companies are required by law to make sure that their workers are able to carry out their jobs safely and that they’re not faced with any unnecessary risks.
Basic health and safety training can help make sure that workers do not get injured as a result of making basic errors while carrying out their duties. If you were told to go and move a large, heavy box and injured yourself as a result of not picking it up properly, you might be able to take action against the company you work for. If you had been offered training on how to lift heavy loads safely by bending at the knees instead of the back, you might have avoided being hurt.
Although making a claim against an employer may seem overwhelming, it can actually be very straightforward and your bosses won’t be able to punish you for making a genuine claim. If you’d like to find out more about making this type of personal injury compensation claim, why not contact Accident Advice Helpline?
