Accidents at work are not a new type of accident and do happen more times than anyone would like to admit. Despite all of the rules, regulations and safety equipment installed there are still many accidents which could potentially be avoided. Although your place of work may appear to be safe and adhering to health and safety, you may begin to notice that your employer is actually making your workplace an accident waiting to happen. When that accident happens, you will need injury solicitors in Bognor Regis.
Hazards in the workplace
Many hazards in the workplace aren’t there originally. Health and safety regulations and procedures take longer to put in place and some employers don’t see the importance of keeping on top of health and safety. Building up deliveries to a store in the fire exit instantly makes your place of work unsafe. Not being to able to leave the building in the event of a fire is extremely dangerous and could cost lives.
Other examples which injury solicitors in Bognor Regis can give include blocking sprinkler systems in stockrooms and not keeping a fully-equipped first aid kit.
