Aylesford, Kent, is a village which was originally a small riverside settlement and some of the old village still remains today with 60 of the original houses repaired and occupied by modern day families.
The past thirty years has brought massive change to the town and its population has expanded rapidly to over 5,000 residents. The ethnicity of the population is over 98% white, with 77% of those being of christian religion. Employment here is high with only 1.9% of working age people unemployed. Compared with national figures, Aylesford has a relatively high proportion of workers in construction. Injury claims solicitors in Aylesford specialise in accidents and injuries which occur in the workplace and unlike other types of accidents, workplace accidents are almost always as a result of someone else’s negligence, namely your employer.
As well as the previous 30 years bringing much change to Aylesford it has also brought incredible change to the health and safety laws to have them at the high standard we do today. Compared with decades ago there are fewer accidents and fatalities which occur in the workplace, however injury claims solicitors in Aylesford believe there should be none.
Workplace accidents can usually be totally avoided and relatively easily. Failure to adhere to certain rules and regulations may be for many reasons that your employer has justified as such: time resources, finances, low prioritisation etc. The laws of today state that all employees must be given full and adequate training, and this can be costly and a huge drain on other resources but it is absolutely paramount to your safety.
The law also states that you must be provided with the correct equipment and uniform to carry out your job in a safe manner, things like ear defenders, gloves and helmets are not something which can be overlooked. It may be cheaper for your employer to have you work a 70 hour week than employ two people to do the job, but European laws state this is wrong.
