What to do if you don’t understand something at work and how to make an injury claim
The worst thing that you can do if you don’t understand something at work is to try to get on with it anyway and simply hope that you don’t get it wrong. When it comes to work you have to remember that this is your job, and you get paid to do what your employer asks you to do, otherwise there is no reason for you to be paid, or for you to keep your job. If you don’t understand something then you need to be made to understand as soon as possible so that you can do the task that you have been set.
- Ask for help. There is no shame in asking for help at work if you are stuck, and there is certainly far less shame in doing this than in getting it wrong and having to do it again, or have someone else do it for you. At the first sign that you are a bit lost, make sure that you ask for help, or even just for someone to clarify the situation for you.
- Do your research. Before you start any project, do some research so that you can be clear on what you are doing, and make sure that you fully understand what is happening. If you charge ahead thinking that you know what you are doing, but you actually don’t, then you may run into trouble later.
- Get someone to work with you. You might only need someone to work with you for an hour or so to completely understand what you need to do, as so often it is easier to learn by watching someone else than by reading about it or having them explain it to you. You should also work whilst they instruct you, so that you have some memory of doing it for yourself.
