    Common accidents in the workplace in Stoke-on-Trent


    What are common accidents in the workplace in Stoke-on-Trent?

    Although some workplace accidents may be specific to your industry or job role, there are also a number of common accidents that can occur in almost any workplace. These may include:

    Slips, trips and falls

    If your workplace isn’t kept clean and tidy, people could be at risk of falling over or tripping. If a wet floor is left unattended, for example, an employee could easily slip and sustain an injury. Similarly, if electrical or computer cables are left hanging from desks or are strewn over the floor, people could trip and get hurt.

    Falling items

    If you work in a retail or warehouse environment, you may be surrounded by stock or products. Often, these are housed on pallets or on high shelving. If this isn’t done properly, they could be at risk of falling and they could cause someone to sustain a very serious injury.

    Similarly, if you work in an office environment, you may find that shelving is used to house office supplies, files and equipment. If anything were to fall and land on someone, they could be seriously hurt.

    Repetitive strain injuries

    If your job involves repeating the same movements over and over again, such as typing, you could be at risk of repetitive strain injuries. Although these types of injuries can often be avoided in the right working environment, your employer could be held responsible if you sustain this type of injury.

    If you’ve been hurt at work and the incident wasn’t your fault, you should seriously consider taking legal action against your employer. By doing so, you could obtain compensation for your injury but you could also ensure that health and safety is taken more seriously and this could prevent someone else from getting hurt.
