Great Yarmouth is a coastal town on the eastern side of Norfolk in England. Around 97,000 people live there, and many others have visited over the years for a day or longer, enjoying the seaside atmosphere and amusements there. It is famous for its Golden Mile, but for those living there, the area will provide a source of work in one respect or another. There are few cases where Great Yarmouth accident at work compensation is paid out, because few accidents of this sort ever occur.
You may wonder what might go wrong at work, since the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 provides a strong framework within which employers must operate. Certainly, few accidents happen here or elsewhere, but there is a slim chance something might go wrong anywhere you can think of.
Keeping things safe
Any workplace that has machinery present will need to ensure that machinery is repaired and maintained regularly so it is always in perfect working order. It should also have emergency stops in place and safety cut-outs that will work whenever needed. Safety guards can also prevent many nasty accidents from happening.
Training is also important in every job. The nature of the job will determine how much training is required and how often refresher courses are needed. Some may take weeks of training, whereas other less skilled jobs might require a couple of hours’ training and no more.
