Are you claiming compensation in Tendring after using faulty equipment?
In order to perform your job adequately and safely, you may be required to use specialist equipment or safety uniforms. Firefighters, for example, need to use very specialist equipment in order to be able to enter burning buildings and get close enough to fires to put them out. Without their protective clothing and building apparatus, they would be in far more danger than they already are, and it is unlikely that they would be able to perform their job roles.
Similarly, people working with hazardous chemicals must wear breathing apparatus and protective clothing. Failing to do so could mean that they become unwell, or it could put them at risk of developing certain illnesses later in life.
In many cases your employer will be required to supply this safety equipment, and it should be maintained and checked on a regular basis to ensure that it is still working properly. If your employer fails to supply this equipment, or you feel that the equipment needs to be replaced, it is important to raise this issue with them immediately. Working without the appropriate safety equipment could put your life in danger, so it’s essential that your employer takes action immediately.
However, if your employer has refused to supply this equipment and you’ve been hurt as a result, you may want to claim compensation in Tendring from them. Although compensation in Tendring may not be able to reverse your injuries, it can help you to cope financially whilst you recover from the harm that you’ve suffered. In addition to this, your claim may highlight unsafe practices within the company or the industry as a whole, which could lead to changes in the workplace. Although it may be too late to prevent yourself from getting hurt, your claim for compensation in Tendring could help to prevent other employees from suffering similar injuries or illnesses.
Although making a claim for compensation in Tendring against an employer can be worrying, you’re perfectly entitled to do so and your employer can’t take action against you for making a genuine claim.
