    Understanding the law

    For any employer the question of employee safety is an important one and there are many precautions they should take in order to safeguard your safety while at work and ensure you have the best possible working environment.

    This can include everything from adhering to basic health and safety measures, making sure room temperature remains within acceptable boundaries and also making any special provisions for particular risks which certain jobs might involve.

    They should also have employer’s liability insurance which provides cover for any injuries which happen to employees while on the premises.

    When can you claim?

    If your employer fails to provide adequate cover for any of these issues and you are injured as a result then there may well be good reason for a claim.

    Examples might include an injury caused because of poor health and safety adherence within the building, long term conditions such as industrial deafness caused by poorly maintained machinery or a lack of equipment, or indeed something as simple as repetitive strain injury.

    Let’s take the example of industrial deafness. This is a real risk if you spend a substantial amount of your working life in a factory working with or around loud machinery.

    Your employer should provide protection in the form of ear defenders and if possible make alterations to the machinery to negate the effects.
