Do you know the facts about workplace injuries?
Although there is legislation in place to protect employees at work, the statistics surrounding workplace injuries in the UK tell a different story.
According to the Health and Safety Executive, workplace injuries and illness were prevalent throughout the country in 2012-2013:
- There were over 78,000 reported workplace injuries
- There were over 1.1 million people living with a work-related illness
- There were over 148 people killed at work
When employers neglect the health and safety legislation put in place to protect workers, preventable accidents can happen, and innocent people sustain injuries. If you have been injured at work in West Oxfordshire, you could be entitled to make a compensation claim.
