Any person running a business with employees has a duty of care to ensure the safety and security of their staff at all times. This duty of care is ratified by the Health and Safety Act 1974, and under these rules the employer has to:
- Take any and all reasonable steps to protect the health, safety and welfare of all employees and visitors to the premises
- Control any risks which may exist
- Carry out risk assessments
- Provide information to all employees on the risks which exist
- Ensure regular training of employees in health and safety measures
Need an injury lawyer in Chesterton?
If you have suffered a work based injury you may find that you need medical assistance, time away from work to recover and even long term support to help you manage your injuries and any long term effects they might have had. Your injury lawyer can help you assess what is needed and start progressing with your claim immediately. They will be there to answer any questions or concerns you have regarding your compensation claim.
If your injury lawyer establishes that the cause of your accident lies with your employer because they have been negligent, careless or have fundamentally failed in their legal duty of care then you have an automatic right to make a claim for compensation.
Your injury lawyer will explain that this right ensures that you cannot be penalised or punished by your employer for making a claim against them. Many people worry that if they do decide to make a claim against their employer that the will be ostracised by other members of the work place, or even sacked. This is not the case. Your employer will not be directly paying for your compensation as they will have insurance which will cover the cost of this.
