    Injury claim in Sconser

    If you are injured in an accident at work, you may be able to make an injury claim in Sconser

    Employers in the UK have a legal responsibility to protect the health and safety of their employees while in the workplace. They need to create a safe working environment, and if they do not comply with the regulations and an employee is injured in an accident, they may face an injury claim in Sconser.

    How an employer can avoid an injury claim in Sconser

    There are things employers can do to make sure that employees are not injured and have to make an injury claim in Sconser. These include:

    • Ensuring that all plant and equipment is in proper working order;
    • Having a health and safety policy and ensuring that everyone knows and implements the contents of it;
    • Having procedures in place in case of an emergency and ensuring that all employees know what to do;
    • Having regular fire drills;
    • Ensuring that any safety guards or devices are in place and in proper working order;
    • Giving employees proper training in the use of plant and machinery;
    • Reporting serious accidents to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE);
    • Carrying out risk assessments and acting upon their findings;
    • Making sure that all employees have proper breaks;
    • Ensuring to provide protective clothing free of charge to all employees;
    • Making sure that there are proper sanitary facilities;
    • Recording all accidents in an accident book; and
    • Making sure you have enough room to do your job comfortably.

    If the employer fails to comply with these, or any other regulations that apply specifically to their trade or profession, and an employee is injured in an accident through no fault of their own, they may be entitled to make an injury claim in Sconser.

    The employee also has a duty

    Employees also have a duty of care to themselves, their employer and their workmates. They should:

    • Do nothing that puts themselves or anyone else in danger;
    • Never drink alcohol during working hours;
    • Wear the protective clothing supplied by the employer;
    • Refuse to use plant and equipment that is not in proper working order;
    • Refuse to use plant and equipment without safety guards and devices;
    • Taking proper breaks — a tired employee is more likely to have an accident;
    • If they are unsure how to use a piece of equipment, tell their employer and ask for extra training;
    • Make sure they know the health and safety policy and act accordingly; and
    • Make sure they know the procedures in case of an emergency.
