Our injury solicitors in Halstead know the health and safety at work laws inside out
The injury solicitors in Halstead are used to help with compensation claims for all sorts of injuries that occur anywhere and in any circumstances. But it’s in the workplace, when dealing with employers who have in some way been negligent with regard to their duty of care to their employees, that any injury claim solicitor needs to be well informed about health and safety at work, just as we are here at Accident Advice Helpline.
The minefield of health and safety rules and regulations
Health and safety law is a regular minefield for employers these days, but then again it has to be comprehensive in order to try to minimise the risks of injury in the workplace. Hazards exist in all departments — not just on the factory floor, but in the offices too. There’s the risk of trailing leads causing slips, trips and falls; the risk of developing carpal tunnel syndrome from working with computers; the risk of back injury from use of non-ergonomic friendly furniture; eye strain for computer displays – the list goes on.
To be able to conform to health and safety best practices, any employer should carry out a risk assessment with regard to any manual operations that employees undertake, whether these are office- or factory-based. These risk assessments are the catalyst for issuing appropriate personal protective equipment, and/or changing circumstances if possible, to reduce risks. When our injury solicitors in Halstead are asked to help with workplace injury claims, we know exactly what to look for in terms of whether or not any transgressions have occurred within the health and safety structure.
