Whatever your occupation is, your employer is legally bound to make sure your work environment is as safe as possible. Carrying out this responsibility entails several duties, including, but not limited to:
- Providing you with proper training
- Making available suitable protective clothing and other gear such as safety goggles, hard hats, and boots
- Providing procedures for safe work to be carried out
- Hiring competent staff who are qualified to carry out their jobs
If your employer has not ensured your safety, and you’ve been injured in the workplace in Weymouth and Portland, then you could be entitled to pursue a personal injury compensation claim and receive compensation.

Pursuing claims when you’ve been injured in the workplace in Weymouth and Portland
Sometimes, employees who have been injured in the workplace in Weymouth and Portland, are reluctant to pursue accident at work claims because they may worry that making a claim might negatively affect their relationships with fellow workmates, or they are afraid of repercussions from their employer.
This is not the case. Employers’ liability insurance has to be taken out by businesses, in order to cover payouts to employees who are injured at work. This means that if you do get awarded compensation for your claim, it is the insurance company that will pay. Your employer’s own funds will not be affected.
