    Compensation claim in Talgarth


    Why Health and Safety is Important in the Workplace

    No matter what type of place you work in, whether it is behind the counter of a checkout desk or on a dangerous construction site, your employer has an obligation to ensure you are kept safe within your place of work. Some workplaces will have a designated health and safety team to deal with this, while others will look after health and safety issues on an ad hoc basis; it generally depends on the size and type of company you work in. There are many reasons why health and safety should be taken seriously in the workplace and if this is not the case and you end up being injured, you may be entitled to make a compensation claim in Talgarth.

    Protection

    If proper health and safety precautions are put in place, it protects workers so they are safe and as such, less likely to be involved in dangerous accidents. The methods your employer should take to ensure your safety include, removing obstacles which may cause you to take a tumble, ensuring signage is visible whenever there is a potential danger and providing appropriate protection equipment to wear. If you work on a construction site or in a factory, your employer should be even more careful about the ways in which they protect your safety in the workplace.

    Cost Effective

    It is more cost effective to take health and safety precautions from the offset, as otherwise you could end up paying out if workers make a compensation claim in Talgarth. If you deal with health and safety before it ends up being too late, it will be much more cost effective for the future of your company. It also means that workers are less likely to take time off due to ill-health as a result of any accidents and injuries.

    Improve Productivity Levels

    If workers feel comfortable and safe in their environment, they are more likely to be productive, which is beneficial to the company as a whole. A safe and healthy working environment can do wonders for the overall well-being of the workers, which can help productivity and in turn, the profitability of the company.

    If health and safety is not properly taken care of in your place of work and it results in you being involved in an accident which causes an injury, you may be entitled to make a compensation claim in Talgarth. In order to do this, the accident must have been caused by someone else’s negligence and should have happened within the last three years. You must have received medical attention as a result of the accident, and you will have to be able to prove this with copies of your medical records.
