    Risk Assessments

    No matter why an accident in Wellingborough has occurred, or the situation in which it took place, when an injury occurs within a work environment, it is often because an employer has failed to perform a risk assessment.

    A risk assessment is designed to ensure that the premises which workers are expected to work in, and the activities that they are meant to do, are safe. All employers, regardless of their industry or the number of employees they have working for them, are required to complete regular risk assessments, and in most cases document them.

    In order to avoid an accident in Wellingborough from occurring an employer should:

    • Look for hazards which may be in place within the work area. These can include things which are likely to cause trips, slips, falls or other forms of injury such as dangerous machinery.
    • Determined who is likely to get injured by such hazards. For example, in the case of a kitchen where an oven has been highlighted as a potential hazard, a key employee likely to be at risk of injury is a chef.
    • Consider the risks identified and determine whether these can be minimalized. This may be don through training, or the provision of personal protection equipment, for example in the case of the chef, through the use of oven gloves.

    It is advisable that the risk assessment is recorded, both for the employee’s benefit, and for the employer’s benefit. If a risk assessment has been completed, and the steps have not been taken, and an accident in Wellingborough has occurred, then it will be easy for us to make a claim for you.

    It is also important that your employer reviews the risk assessment on a regular basis to ensure that nothing has changed, and that additional risks have not presented themselves since the last assessment was completed.
