    Your employer’s responsibility to prevent you from sustaining an industrial injury

    Were you aware of your employer’s responsibility to prevent you from sustaining an industrial injury?

    If you been involved in an accident at work that wasn’t your fault then you need to know how to get recompense. Your employer’s responsibility to prevent you from sustaining an industrial injury will be a key issue when making your compensation claim.

    We all expect to be kept safe in the workplace and part of this involves our own behaviour while at work. We should always follow the rules and regulations laid down by our employer because they’re for our own safety.

    Industrial processes often involve machinery or chemicals and special care should be taken when working in these environments. It’s common sense that you should not operate plant or machinery that you’ve not been trained to use. Nor should you handle chemicals without protective equipment and a knowledge of what you’re doing. Lifting heavy objects is a common cause of serious back injuries. There should be clear training in your workplace to avoid this kind of injury.

    Your employer’s responsibilities

    Most employers take the safety of their workers very seriously. They are required to do this by law. It’s an employer’s duty to protect the health, safety and welfare of their employees.

    This means making sure that employees are protected from things that may cause them harm or affect their health on a short- or long-term basis.

    Employers must assess risks in the workplace. Risk assessments need to be carried out for all work procedures on a regular basis. Your employer should train you on how to deal with any risks identified and keep you informed of any changes following a risk assessment.

    You should know who your safety representative is and how to contact him or her. Reporting problems promptly can save injury and sometimes lives. Regular training, the provision of personal protective equipment and good communication make for a safer workplace.
