Thousands of workers are injured every year in slips, trips and falls at work. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is a government department that promotes safe working practices. It has a wealth of safety advice and resources to help companies and workers protect against all kinds of injuries under the banner Shattered Lives Campaign. You will find a link to the campaign on the HSE site. Talk to us today if you need expert legal help in Market Bosworth.
Watch your STEP
The Slips and Trips eLearning Package (STEP) teaches workers how to recognise the conditions that set up a fall and how to avoid them. The course is available online, at different levels, and is appropriate to a range of industries.
Learn to WAIT
The HSE WAIT toolkit is designed for people who occasionally work at height. A fall from height can kill or paralyse for life. Thousands of individuals are hurt in this way every year. A link to the WAIT toolkit is also available from the HSE Shattered Lives page.
Other resources available on the HSE site include safety advice posters, ‘danger’ display cards, checklists and assessments and links to other resources.
However large or small your workforce, and especially if you are self-employed, your first investment should be in keeping you and your employees safe.
Injury solicitors Market Bosworth
