Here are some things to do to make sure you do not get involved in an accident at work.
- Get adequate training. Your employer should provide you with all of the training you need to do your job properly. If you do not feel that you have been adequately trained then you should approach your employer as soon as possible and ask for more training. If you are not given appropriate training then you may be able to make an injury claim in Old Sodbury if you are involved in an accident.
- Learn the health and safety rules. Your employer should make the health and safety regulations available to you so that you can read up on how to do your job safely. This will also help you to make sure that you are not in violation of any of the rules if you are in an accident.
- Use all safety equipment and protective clothing provided. If you have been provided with safety equipment and clothing then you should always use it when doing your job. Your employer is not at fault if you are injured due to not using the equipment you have been given.
- Report any problem with safety equipment. As soon as you notice a problem with any safety equipment you should stop using it and report it. It is then up to your employer to replace or repair it as soon as possible so that you can do your job effectively.
