Lack of safety at work and related injuries


Has lack of safety at work and related injuries caused you to be ill?

Whether or not we enjoy our job, we should all be entitled to be kept as safe as possible while we’re at work. If lack of safety at work and related injuries have caused you to be ill then you need some good legal advice.

Some jobs are safer than others. If you work in a bank then your risk of physical injury at work may be less than if you work on a construction site. Your employer has a responsibility to maintain as safe a working environment as possible at all times.

Risk Assessment

Undertaking risk assessments is an important part of your employer’s responsibility to employees. This means ensuring that employees are made fully aware of what risks they might face in their particular work. Staff should be trained and provided with safe equipment to do their job.

The working environment should be safe, well ventilated with adequate lighting. Overcrowding and fumes, if a problem, must be addressed. If staff are required to work with machinery then this must be maintained and training given on its operation.

Carrying out regular risk assessments and putting things right should be in place to protect you

When lack of safety at work and related injuries have affected you

If the worst has happened and you have been injured at work through no fault of your own then you need to contact Accident Advice Helpline as soon as possible to claim some compensation.
