Essex is one of the counties closest to London, situated in the south-east of England. The county town of Essex is Chelmsford, which is recognised as being the lone city in the county. The county has just shy of 1.4 million residents. Many of them work in the county, or travel to and from London for work. Some of those working in the county have considered claiming Essex accident at work compensation for incidents that have occurred while working. Thankfully, few people are ever injured while at work, including those in this county.
Most work hazards are recognised and handled long before they have a chance to cause any problems. The health and safety duties of each and every employer mean that risk assessments are regularly undertaken where such hazards are noted and handled.
Which workplaces could present hazards?
Would it surprise you to know they all could? It’s easy to see some workplaces are potentially more hazardous than others. For example, any working environment with machinery, hazardous chemicals and the requirement for people to work at height would present a wide variety of possibilities in this area.
However, even something as humble as a small office could potentially be the scene of an accident at times. If you can imagine the leads trailing from a phone, a computer and even a printer, you can imagine there is a chance of someone tripping over them if nothing else. This doesn’t just apply in offices and workplaces in Essex either – it could potentially happen anywhere at all.
