Injury claim solicitor in Godalming


A school claim with an injury claim solicitor in Godalming can arise in a number of ways. Accident Advice Helpline handle many school claims every year and are well placed to handle your school claim. Here are a few examples of the type of claim that Accident Advice Helpline can handle. The claims would be made against the organisation operating the school, and this may be a public sector organisation or a private company.

School cleaner injury

The employees who clean the school buildings face a number of hazards. Their employer has a duty of care to protect their health, safety and welfare when they are at work. Cleaners face a number of hazards in the course of their duties, and it is the employer’s responsibility to make sure that they adequately risk-assess all of the tasks that the cleaner performs. One of the major hazards is the cleaning chemicals that the employees need to use. There are strict procedures regarding the selection and use of hazardous substances. If it is possible to use a less hazardous substance, then that should be done. It may also be necessary to alter the way in which the substance is used.

Cleaners will need to be provided with personal protective equipment (such as goggles and gloves) so that they can protect themselves when they are using the hazardous chemical. The personal protective equipment must fit properly and be easy to use. Training and supervision are also vital aspects of the health and safety procedures relating to cleaning chemicals and can prevent the need for a school claim. Staff need to be trained in how to use all the cleaning chemicals correctly, and in the health and safety precautions that must be adopted. They should also be trained in what to do if an accident occurs and the chemical comes into contact with an employee’s skin or eyes.

If you have been injured in a cleaning accident in a school, you may be able to start a school claim with an injury claim solicitor in Godalming. Accident Advice Helpline will be able to advise you further.

Maintenance staff

Maintenance staff will be required to carry out the full range of maintenance duties around a school, so they are presented with exactly the same risks as other maintenance workers. Their employer has a duty to protect their health, safety and welfare whilst they are carrying out these duties. Each work task will need to be risk-assessed so that the hazards can be identified and steps put in place to minimise or remove the risks. The hazards faced by a maintenance worker could involve equipment and tools. They must be provided with the correct equipment for the job and the equipment must be checked and maintained regularly. The employees also need to be trained in how to use it safely.
