Complete incident book
Most places of work will have an incident book for potential accidents in the workplace and if they don’t, they should! If you are injured it is important to enter this information into the incident book as not only does it keep a record of the accident, it can also be used in the future as proof if you decide to make a compensation claim in Taplow.
If you are involved in an accident, no matter how embarrassing it may have been, you should always inform someone about it. This is imperative as your injury may not seem as bad as it is and also, if it comes to the point of making a claim, this person may be able to act as a witness. It also means they can take precautions so that no one else in the workplace suffers the same accident.
Seek medical attention
