Our compensation claim solicitors in Fowey could help you
Compensation claim solicitors in Fowey deal with all accidents in the workplace claims. Out of all the accidents in the work place which they have dealt with numerous accidents have been caused by various different types of health and safety breaches.
When employers commit health and safety breaches often people get hurt or injured through no fault of their own and when the employer is at fault for having inadequate health and safety in place the employee is eligible to make an accident claim and seek cash compensation.
The most common health and safety breaches which we see employers committing is inadequate health and safety training, or even worse no health and safety training at all.
All employees should be given basic and general health and safety training (e.g. Fire evacuation procedure, reporting accidents, where the first aid is kept, who the company’s first aider’s are and where to find them) and then specialist health and safety training.
Specialist health and safety training should be the health and safety that relates to that person’s job. For example anybody who carries anything as part of their job role should be given proper manual handling training in order to prevent accident and injuries.
