As with all regions, there will be many people in Brighton and Hove, who go to work on a regular basis. The workplace can sometimes be a dangerous place, and it is important that you do what you can in order to protect yourself from injury.
Protecting yourself from common accidents in the workplace in Brighton and Hove
Though it depends on the workplace, one of the risks you want to watch out for in a workplace is that of a back injury. That is because your workplace might require that you have to lift heavy items from time to time.
It is essential that you do what you can in order to protect yourself from a back injury when you are working. Thankfully, there are a few ways you can do this.
The first is to always practice the right kind of technique when you are lifting something. That means that you rarely want to lift something when your back is not straight. If you do not know of the proper technique, when it comes to lifting something, then speak to a member of senior staff and get training.
You will also want to be sure that you’re asking for help, if you are going to lift something heavy. You do not need to take a risk and lift something if it is going to injure you. Anything that looks like it might be a challenge should warrant a situation in which you ask for help from another member of staff.
In any case, if you do experience a back injury due to no fault of your own, then it may be that you want to learn more about making a claim for compensation. If that is the case, then Accident Advice Helpline may be of assistance.
