One of the situations in which you might be able to make a personal injury compensation claim against an employer is if you are injured as a result of their failure to train you properly. If you have not been shown how to use a piece of equipment or machinery properly and you are injured as a result, then your employer is like to be found to be at fault.
Personal Protection Equipment
As well as ensuring that you are suitably trained and have the necessary knowledge to do a job properly, your employer has to make sure that you have the right protection to guard against injury. For example, you might be required to wear goggles to protect your eyes against the risk of injury, or perhaps wear a hard hat whilst on a construction site.
It is the responsibility of your employer to advise you of the risks posed to you, ensure you understand that you need to wear the protective equipment, and where agreed, provide you with this equipment.
Safe working environment
Your employer also has a responsibility to ensure that the environment in which you are working is as safe as your work allows. This means that regular checks should be undertaken to ensure that the equipment you are using is safe and fit for purpose. Maintenance should be carried out quickly, and a replacement offered for anything that is not fit for purpose or likely to pose a danger.
The work premises should also be inspected to make sure that they are free from hazards and risk assessments must be carried out before new work is undertaken.
