The reasons for industrial injury claims in Sheffield
The majority of industrial injury claims are made because employers have not adhered to health and safety legislation. Your boss has a legal duty to make sure you are safe while you are doing your job, and failure to do so can mean they have to face a personal injury claim, as well as possibly being punished by the governments watchdog for these matters, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
HSE have powers to impose fines, close businesses and in the worst cases prosecute employers. They would rather they didn’t have to do this though and have a very user friendly website where your employer can find out all they need to know. HSE will help employers all they can, as they are trying to reduce the number of workers who are injured in accidents at work.
