Things you must do after being involved in an accident in the workplace
The places where we work should be safe and secure, and most people don’t even like to think about the prospect of potentially being involved in an accident. Sometimes though, these things can happen.
If you’re in this situation right now and you’re looking for a little extra guidance and support, you’re in the right place. In this guide, we pinpoint and explain some things that you definitely must do after having an accident in the workplace.
Do your bit to ensure that it doesn’t happen again
Your employer has a duty of care to you and your colleagues, and must ensure that you’re working in a safe environment. Of course though, you probably work with friends and care about their wellbeing, and so it makes sense to take reasonable steps to ensure that the same thing doesn’t happen to them.
Inform your employer of exactly what happened, giving as much detail as you can, and then take it from there. They should take practical steps to make sure that it doesn’t happen again to someone else.
