There is a whole raft of employment laws that stipulate the legal requirements for health and safety at work. These laws were passed to enhance and uphold the safety of people at work. Gone are the days when workers had to endure conditions that were detrimental to their health. Unfortunately, due to negligence, forgetfulness and, in some unfortunate circumstances, malice people can still be injured at work. If you been injured at work through no fault of your own, then you are legally entitled to make an industrial injuries compensation claim.
