What to do if you cause an accident at work and how to make an injury claim

If you are to blame for an accident at work, which has injured yourself or another person, it is important that you own up so that something can be done about it. It may be tempting not to say anything if you know that you are at fault, especially if you know that there is a chance you will lose your job for your role in this accident.

However, if you don’t say anything you may be to blame for someone else losing their job, or for nothing being done at all about the situation, which could mean that it could recur. If you stand up and admit to what you have done sooner rather than later, you may also find that your employer is more lenient with you.

  • Speak to your employer. If you know that it was you to blame for the accident, you should speak to your employer and let them know what you do, so that they can decide the best way to deal with the situation. Just because you caused the accident doesn’t mean that you need to lose your job over it.
  • Make suggestions for how to avoid accidents. If you caused the accident because of something wrong with a machine or some other way that things work within your company, you should let your employer know that changes need to be made to ensure that this situation doesn’t happen again in the future. This may also help you to avoid losing your job.
  • Don’t panic. It is natural to panic in the face of losing your job, but be aware that if you are honest and upfront and promise to make changes so that this situation doesn’t happen again, you may well be able to get out of the situation relatively unscathed. Stay calm and breathe before you go in to talk to your employer.
