Types of Accidents
Our solicitor in Hemingford Abbots has helped countless cleaners and domestics make claims for compensation after they have been injured at work. Some accidents are fairly common place when it comes to the cleaning profession; however, they should be easy to avoid if employers did all they could to ensure the safety of their employers.
For example, many cleaners are injured as a result of exposure to dangerous chemicals. This can cause the development of industrial diseases such as asthma, dermatitis or other breathing problems. All employers are legally obliged to provide safe working environments for staff members and failure to do so can leave them exposed to the risk of being sued for compensation if someone is injured.
When it comes to hazardous and dangerous substances, such as chemicals, employers are duty bound to ensure that workers have access to suitable personal protection equipment, that risk assessments are completed where necessary (and repeated on regular basis) and that full training is provided to minimise the risk.
Cleaners can also be exposed to the potential of receiving a needle stick injury. This means that they have received an injury as a result of a hypodermic syringe piercing their skin. Usually this occurs in a medical facility when emptying a specific “sharps” bin.
Again suitable training on how to perform this sort of duty should be provided, along with suitable PPE to ensure that the staff member is kept safe. Failure to do this can mean that a solicitor in Hemingford Abbots will be filing paperwork to make a claim for compensation.
