Claiming for accident expenses in St Edmundsbury
Let’s say you’re working in the busy kitchen of a popular restaurant, perhaps as a porter or dishwasher. Everyone’s busy with their duties, but over the course of the evening, one of the cooks spills some broth on the tiled floor. You go to clean it up, but you’re ordered to wash the dishes instead. The chef says they’ll get someone else to do it. You think about telling someone else, but orders are flying around, and you have to get through the workload.
Later, you’re busy putting clean dishes away when, concentrating on the task at hand, you step in the puddle made earlier and slip, landing hard on the tiles and cutting yourself on cracked porcelain. You’re in pain, need to get yourself bandaged up, and you’ve got the chef shouting at you for being clumsy. Are you at fault?
When it comes to workplace accidents, we all have a responsibility for our own safety and that of our colleagues. Wherever appropriate and possible, we should avoid tasks that carry a risk, point out dangerous areas of the workplace, and make the workplace safer by cleaning up spillages etc.
However, if you’re working in a busy environment and you get a direct order from a line manager to ignore a hazard, there’s not a lot you can do.You’re not likely to ignore them and plough on with cleaning up the hazard, are you? In that case though, it’s most definitely your employer’s fault.
Employers have a responsibility to ensure that risk of accident and injury to staff is minimised, whether by appropriate training, use of protective gear, or simply actioning the clear up of hazards when they’re pointed out. If they don’t do this and an accident happens, they are liable.
