How employers can avoid an accident at work in Wortwell

Every job has its own dangers, but there are some things that apply to every employment, such as:

  • Carrying out risk assessments and actings on their findings
  • Making sure all equipment and machinery is in good working order, and fitted with safety guards if relevant.
  • Ensuring all walkways are get free of obstacles and spillages
  • Making sure staff are properly trained to use any equipment or machinery safely
  • Having a health and safety policy in place, and making sure staff adhere to it

The seriousness of an accident at work

The consequences of an accident at work can be dire. Some people recover in just a few works, others have their lives changed forever, and some victims lose their lives. If you have an accident at work, you seriously should consider claiming compensation. This can help to make your injuries a little easier to cope with, and help you to get your life back to some normality.

Don’t be put off out of loyalty to your boss, it is their fault you are suffering. Another UK law is that they are insured for such events, so it will be their insurers that settle the claim. Also, the fact someone had made them stand up for what they have done, often has the affect of them taking more care in the future. This could prevent someone else experiencing the same accident as you.
