    Horsley Lodge claim

    Have you slipped on something that was on the floor in your workplace? Should the ‘something’ have been there? If not – it would be referred to as ‘contamination’ and you may have grounds to start an occupational slip claim with an injury solicitor in Horsley Lodge. This is a highly specialised legal process where you make a claim for compensation (money) from the person or organisation that was responsible for the accident. In many cases this can be shown to be the employer because they failed to provide you with a safe working environment.

    How did my occupational Horsley Lodge claim happen?

    You slipped on something that should not have been there. This means that something went wrong. Contamination should be cleaned up immediately and correctly in order to prevent slips and trips in the workplace.

    If the contaminant was greasy then perhaps the correct detergent was not used to clean it or perhaps no detergent was used at all! Just using water (even very hot water) may have made the situation even more slippery rather than helping it. In some slip claims the detergent was not used according to the manufacturer’s instructions and so it was not effective.

    Perhaps paper towels were not used to spot clean a water based contaminant.  This may have resulted in the contaminant being spread even wider on the floor surface. Some accidents may have occurred because a mop was used to clear up contamination. Mopping is really only effective on smoother floors as it just glides over the surface. In fact, the mop can produce a thin film of water over a wider area than the original contamination and this can add to the hazard rather than remove it. This may be overcome by using a dry mop straight away afterwards but this is still unlikely to leave the floor completely safe. There may have to be two stages of mopping if the contaminant is greasy. The first stage mopping will be to apply the detergent and then the second stage mopping will be to clear it away. During this whole time the floor will be a slip hazard and will not be suitable for members of staff to walk on.
