    Compensation for a non fault work injury


    Every day, thousands of people are injured on the job, costing companies that they work for millions of pounds a year in claims.  But when a company takes the proper precautions, most injuries at work can be avoided. Below are some of the most common reasons that workers succumb to injuries.

    Falling from high places is a common reason to claim compensation for a non fault work injury

    This kind of fall occurs from elevated areas like ladders, stairways, and roofs. These kinds of falls can be a result of slipping and falling or because of faulty equipment. These kinds of accidents are able to be reduced through using the right kind of protection gear. It’s also important to train employees on what to do when they are on a high place and to also train them to be aware of what’s going on around them.

    Slipping and tripping

    Another big cause of injuries in the workplace is slipping and tripping. This is falls on slippery and wet floors or tripping over an item that’s on the ground. Employees need to be trained to be aware of what is happening in the workplace in order to help reduce the amount of these kinds of accidents. It’s also important to lay down safety guidelines so that spills get cleaned up promptly and to reduce the amount of debris that is on the ground to reduce injuries. Most of the slipping and tripping injuries in the workplace can be avoided by cleaning up promptly after a spill or paying attention to what you’re doing and where you’re going.

    Over-exertion

    These kinds of injuries are related to lifting, holding, pulling, carrying, and throwing in the workplace. Over exertion is one of the main causes of injuries to employees at work. Not only can the person injured themselves when they are over exerting themselves, but if they do it wrong, they can hit someone else which causes another person to be injured. Training and special equipment can be provided to employees to help with reducing the amount of over-exertion injuries.

    Lack of proper training

    Many employees who are injured while at work are injured simply because they have not been properly trained to the do the job for which they were hired. Sometimes employees are thrown into the fray without being given ample training to know how to do their job safely and effectively.  When an employee doesn’t know how to use the equipment or how to do a certain procedure, it can cause them to injure themselves on their job for no other reason than lack of proper training.
