You may recall from your history lessons at school, the dark, damp, grimy and unsafe places that people were forced to endure as they went to work every day. Some lost limbs in unguarded machinery whilst other lost their lives; some suffered permanent disfigurement that meant they were unable to work. Outcast by society and owing money, they were forced to take their place in the workhouse.
Over the years, things changed. Philanthropists campaigned that children should be allowed to be children, by playing and being educated. And that no one should go to work in a morning with the thought that there was a high chance they would not return home, alive in the evening.
Add to this mix, the legal expertise of people like Accident Advice Helpline and their injury solicitors and time have really changed: the workplace is now not only more comfortable but safer too.
