    Employers’ responsibilities

    When it comes to work your employer has a duty of care to ensure that you and all other members of staff, are kept safe. This usually means ensuring that the work place is free from hazards to avoid slips trips or falls, that personal protection equipment is provided when staff are in need of it, that suitable training is provided to all staff members (with refresher courses being taken as and when necessary) and that all equipment is inspected and properly maintained.

    When an employer fails to adhere to the various laws and regulations surrounding employee safety it is almost always only a matter of time before someone is injured and injury solicitors in St Leonards-on-Sea get involved.

    For example, if you work in a particularly noisy environment then your employer has a duty of care to provide you with ear defenders to help mitigate the potential risks caused by constant loud noises.

    As part of your job you may be knowingly exposed to hazardous substances such as asbestos. The dangers of this substance are well known, and personal protection equipment in the form of overalls and face masks should be worn to protect from the hazards.

    If your employer has failed to provide these basic precautionary measures for you then you will be perfectly entitled to make a claim for compensation if you have suffered as a result. For example, you may have developed asbestosis, lung disease, pleural thickening or mesothelioma.
