With European working laws, rules and regulations you should be 100% safe in your workplace, and you should receive no injury on the job, and if you have done so then this will almost definitely be as a result of someone’s failure to protect your safety, usually your employer.
Your employer can fail to ensure your safety in a number of different ways, such as:
- Not providing you with the correct safety equipment to do your job, things such as ear defenders, hard hats, goggles and gloves
- Exposing you to harmful chemicals such as asbestos
- Not giving adequate breaks, or working you too hard
- Not maintaining machinery to a safe standard
- Not giving you or those around you sufficient training
- Having hazards in the workplace such as broken floor tiles or faulty electricals
- Not adhering to the European working hours
- Making you multi task and putting too heavy workload on you
