If you work around noise, sparks or electricity, debris, dust, hazardous materials or just about anything that can cause an injury through direct contact or inhalation, your employer is responsible for providing you with PPE to prevent injuries.
PPE, or personal protective equipment, is vital to ensuring employees are a lower risk of sustaining an injury in the workplace. Examples of PPE include:
- Safety goggles
- Ear protectors
- High visibility clothing
- Ventilation masks
- Hard hats and helmets
If you have been injured in an accident because your employer failed to provide the right PPE, you may be within your legal rights to claim compensation. Under UK law, you can make a claim if the negligence of another party has caused you an injury, and it occurred within the past three years.
Employers have a responsibility to protect the health and ensure the safety of employees at all times. If they neglect this responsibility and you are injured as a result, enquire about your right to claim Dumbarton accident at work compensation with Accident Advice Helpline.
