Glasgow accident at work compensation
Accidents happen every day in the UK, and are an unfortunate fact of life. Sometimes they are just that – random accidents that no one is to blame for. However, sometimes accidents can happen due to negligence or carelessness, and it’s not always the victim of the accident who’s at fault.
In the workplace, when accidents happen, it’s important to know why they happened. All employers have a duty of care to their workforce to ensure they don’t come to harm during their work – and this duty is enshrined in health & safety law.
Employers must take all reasonable precautions to protect employees. This can mean making sure that adequate training is provided and that the training is updated to reflect new processes and procedures. If working with machinery, all equipment should be in full working order and kept regularly maintained, or replaced if repair is not possible.
In some circumstances, proper protective clothing and equipment should be provided. This can include overalls, protective eyewear, gloves, hard hats, boots or hearing protectors. Regardless of the type of equipment, training should also be given on how to use this, and it should be regularly replaced.
