Fairford is located in the Cotswolds, close to other well-known towns and villages including Lechlade. It benefits from its beautiful position on the River Coln, and attracts many visitors looking to explore the Cotswolds in more detail. A little over 3,000 people currently live in the area, few of whom would ever consider contacting injury lawyers in Fairford. Indeed, it might actually be difficult to do so, given the small size of the town itself.
Some people choose to work in Fairford as well as living there. There are a variety of workplaces in the area, some providing services to the locals as well as to the tourists. Fortunately, the vast majority of these workplaces are safe and enjoyable to work in each day.
The consequences and potential hazards posed by untidy workplaces
Public-facing businesses have a real need to look their best at all times. Would you buy from a bakery that was continually untidy and cluttered, for example? On the other hand, it makes sense to consider how an employee might feel if they were forced to work in such circumstances. For one thing, doing so could potentially be dangerous and lead to an increased chance of injuries occurring.
Very often, for example, slips, trips and falls can happen in a cluttered and untidy workplace. It is very unlikely anyone in Fairford would work in such circumstances, but it can happen anywhere. The employer has a duty to make sure all employees can work in safe surroundings, regardless of the type of work they happen to do.
