HSE Accidents at Work


HSE Accidents at Work

Despite some of the bad press that is generated by the issue of health and safety, the fact remains that in the UK we are very fortunate to live and work in a country where our safety is of paramount importance at home, on the street and at work. When it comes to the employment sphere the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) are dedicated to promoting and maintaining safe and healthy working environments and thanks to the HSE accidents at work are now at a much lower level than they ever were in our history.

However, despite the best efforts of the HSE accidents at work do still happen and on some occasions due to the flouting of the original guidelines and rules of the HSE accidents at work can be the fault of employers. The employer has a legal and moral responsibility to the health and safety of their workers, and if they don’t live up to this responsibility and it results in an accident then the employee could be entitled to compensation.

When Could You Have A Compensation Claim?

The law states that if you suffer an injury and somebody else was to blame then you are entitled to seek compensation for the physical, emotional and financial pain that you have endured. This still very much applies in the workplace, when an injury is caused by an unsafe working environment or one which is not kept to HSE safety standards by your employer. In the majority of cases you have a period of three years after an incident in which you can claim for compensation, unless the claim relates to an industrial disease such as asbestos poisoning when no time limit is applied.
