    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Your employer’s responsibility to uphold health and safety at work


    You’re probably only too aware that it is your employer’s responsibility to uphold health and safety at work, so if you are at all concerned that you and your colleagues are at risk, you should point that out to managers. It’s always a good idea to have this sort of conversation recorded or minuted, as you can never be too sure of when you’ll need proof that shortcomings in health and safety in the workplace have been pointed out on previous occasions.

    Your employer’s responsibility to uphold health and safety at work

    It is your employer’s responsibility to uphold health and safety at work in all areas. This means from the moment you access the physical space your workplace occupies, there should be systems and procedures in place to keep you safe. This also covers any distance working you do – travel to other places for example, to see clients or colleagues – and it also covers your mental well-being. These are generally outlined in the employee handbook if you have one. If there is an HR department, they will be able to outline health and safety too.

    If you have been let down by health and safety in the workplace and you have had an accident that caused you injuries, then you should think about making a claim for compensation against your employer.

    Making a claim for a workplace accident

    If you come to Accident Advice Helpline to discuss making a claim through us, there are a number of things we will look out for. Our criteria for making a personal injury claim include the following:

    • You have suffered an accident in the last three years
    • The accident was not your fault
    • You received injuries in the accident
    • Your injuries were treated by a medical professional (paramedic, GP, hospital etc.)

    We will be keen to track down as much evidence as possible about your accident, so if you can supply us with witnesses, CCTV, records from an accident book, photographs, or things of that ilk, this will help to make your claim stronger, and we’ll be in a better position to win you the compensation you deserve.
