Have you received training at work?
When companies decide to hire staff and employees, they are required to ensure that the workplace is safe and that no-one is at an increased risk of suffering an injury or becoming ill. Although this may involve ensuring that the offices or building in which you work is safe and hygienic, there is far more to it.
For example, in addition to maintaining the fixtures and fittings, your employers must also ensure that you’re well equipped to carry out your role. If they were to expect you to carry out a task but provided no training for it, you may be more likely to suffer an accident or injury and they could be held liable.
If for example, a warehouse operative was expected to use a forklift truck but was given no training on how to drive the vehicle, it’s likely that they could hurt themselves or someone else. If you were hurt whilst carrying out an activity at work and you hadn’t received the proper training, solicitors in Humberside may be able to help you make a claim for compensation.
