Not given the correct tools or training? Injured in an accident in North Somerset?
Employers in the UK have many responsibilities. Above most is the idea that they have a duty of care to their staff, especially when it comes to their safety. This means that when rogue companies who do not meet this standard fail their staff, causing harm, this will often lead to someone being injured in an accident in North Somerset.
Employers need to ensure that workers have the proper tools for the job. This could be equipment that is well maintained and not faulty, or equipment that is there to actually protect people. Either way, not ensuring that these protections are in place puts people at risk.
How this is dangerous
For pretty much any position, you could be in danger if you are working with faulty equipment – even a computer could cause you a serious problem if there is an electrical fault.
Then for those that work in conditions with more risk, there is deliberate and clear safety guidelines that make it clear what the responsibility of the employer is. In this situation safety equipment is paramount, and if you work in conditions where you should have safety equipment, not having it could put your life at risk.
A reason to make a claim if you’re injured in an accident in North Somerset
In these circumstances, making a claim is important. Obviously it is important that you get the compensation that you are owed. But more seriously, if your boss has put you in this position, they could also do it to others as well – so you need to make sure that they are held accountable. If you wonder whether making a claim does this, just think about how companies respond to their profits being threatened.
