Accidents at work come in many different forms. Some hazards in the workplace are more obvious and visible than others. Working in a warehouse the hazards are obvious with big machines and heavy lifting both being parts of the every day routine.
But when working in a more stationary environment the hazards can be more difficult to spot. Even though you can’t see them this could still be a Derby no win no fee* accident claim.
Computing And A Derby No Win No Fee* Accident Claim
Working on computers for long periods of time can produce many hidden issues on staff. Regulations and health and safety laws stipulate the time frames of which staff members should be on computers and the amount of time away from computers needed to prevent any development of strains or repetitive strain injury.
Any health issues that are developed through the mismanagement of staff and computers could essentially be a Derby no win no fee* accident claim.
Computer Eye Strain
Computer eye strain just like repetitive strain injury is developed through the prolonged use of a computer. Regulations have guidelines of computer use which should be adhered to, to minimise the effects of any strains occurring.
Taking regular short breaks away from the computer is just one of the guidelines given for the safe use of computers. Any training and information you need in order to conduct the use of computers safely should be completed in the induction at the beginning of your job and also at refresher sessions.
If you have not had any session regarding health and safety when working with computers this could be the base for your Derby no win no fee* accident claim. Although there are no blatant signs of an accident developing computer eye strain or repetitive strain injury as a result of no training or negligence to abide by the guidelines could be ample to set up a case for some compensation for the condition of health.
If you have developed repetitive strain injury or have computer eye strain you may be entitled to make a claim.
