Are you claiming compensation for a lack of safety at work in Torbay due to poor training?
Due to the complexity of most jobs, it’s likely that every employee will receive some form of training whilst they are in employment. When you start a new job, you may undergo an induction which can last from a few days to a few weeks. In addition to helping you to familiarise yourself with your new place of work, this induction will also ensure that you’re able to perform your job role effectively and safely.
Of course, it isn’t always possible to start work straight away. Many jobs require candidates to do months or years of training before they are fully qualified. Even then, most employees are expected to continue their training whilst they are working in order to ensure that they are up-to-date with new developments in the industry.
Although many employees find this training time-consuming, it can be crucial to their success in the workplace. In addition to helping them to work more efficiently, it can also increase safety in the workplace.
If a company or an employer fails to deliver effective training, it’s possible that standards may slip and employees could be performing their jobs in a dangerous manner. If, for example, construction workers aren’t trained on new safety techniques, needless accidents could occur and people could be hurt as a result.
If you haven’t been trained at work, or you’ve received sub-standard training, you may want to raise this issue with your employers as soon as possible. Of course, if an accident has already occurred because you weren’t properly trained, it’s likely that you will want to take action against them.
Although employers aren’t responsible for every accident which occurs on their premises, if you can show that they caused your injuries then it is likely that they will have to pay you compensation. If more than one employee was hurt in the incident, it may even be possible for all of those affected to make successful claims, and you could all be awarded compensation.
