Injury Claim in Forest Heath

0

Everyone has the right to expect to be safe in their job and if employers follow the health and safety rules for their trade or profession then the working environment should be a safe place to be. But if they do not comply with the laws on these issues, employees could be injured in accidents that are no fault of their own and employers should not be shocked when a personal injury claim in Forest Heath is made against them.

How employers can avoid employees making a personal injury claim in Forest Heath

There is hundreds of health and safety regulations, some of them apply to all trades, and some relate to particular trades and professions. Just some of the general ones are:

  • There should be a health and safety policy in place, which employers make sure all employees know and adhere to.
  • Risk assessments should be a regular occurrence, and any hazards that are found should be eliminated.
  • There should be procedures in place in case of an emergency situation, which all staff know and understand.
  • Walkways should be kept clear of spillages and obstacles.
  • Every employee should have enough room to work in without excessive twisting and turning.
  • All accidents, no matter how minor they are, should be recorded in an accident book.
  • Most employers should buy employers liability insurance, as it is this that settles most accident at work claims.
  • Serious accidents should be reported to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
  • Employers should make sure each member of staff takes their designated breaks.
  • There should be regular fire drills which all staff takes part in.
  • All plant and machinery should be in proper working order, and have whatever safety devices are needed fitted to it.
  • Staff should be adequately trained in any plant and equipment they are going to use, and only trained workers should be allowed to use it.
  • Staff who refuse to use plant and equipment that is faulty, or they have not been trained for, cannot be disciplined. 

These are just a few of the rules employers should follow, the whole list in its entirety is available on the very user friendly HSE website. As well as being available on the Internet, employers can call HSE if they need help with health and safety issues, and there really is no argument for them being ignorant of the facts about what they should be doing.
