A report produced by the government in 2010 found that two parts of Forest Heath in Suffolk enjoy the highest levels of employment out of nearly 32,500 English areas. And, with its diverse economy, Forest Heath takes in workplaces as varied as RAF Lakenheath and Newmarket Racecourse.
While these figures are, of course, superb news for local people, they do also mean that you’re just as likely to have a Forest Heath accident at work as you are anywhere else, if not more so.
If you are unlucky enough to have had an accident at work within the last three years, and can prove someone else was negligent, you may well be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim for your Forest Heath accident at work.
After all, every employer is legally obliged to protect all staff members, visitors and contractors from injuries and accidents.
That means anything you need to do your job safely must be provided, while your workplace must also be free from hazards and orderly. That includes, for example, keeping doors and gates free from obstructions.
Equally, if the job you do involved working at height, you are protected by specific regulations.
