Have you been hurt in a work canteen or café? Get free claims advice in Upper Brailes.
Need free claims advice in Upper Brailes? As many employers are keen to keep employees in the workplace during lunch hours or breaks, they often designate space for a café, restaurant or canteen. Many companies believe that this will result in employees taking shorter lunch breaks and, therefore, spending more time at their desks.
Whilst this may be seen to benefit employers, it can benefit employees as well. Often, these outlets sell food and drink at subsidised rates so it doesn’t cost employees as much to get their lunch and snacks every day and many employees find that having an in-house café is more convenient than having to go elsewhere.
Although your employer is liable for your health and safety while you’re at work, this doesn’t just apply to your office or the area in which you work. In order to ensure the safety of their workers, employers must assess the health and safety of the building as a whole.
If, for example, they didn’t maintain communal areas, such as the café or the stairwells, people could easily be hurt as a result.
