Gravesend is a busy commercial town with high employment rate in the many businesses here, small, large, independent and chain. Whether you work in retail, agriculture or offices you will be well aware of the health and safety standards expected today in everyones place of work. By law all employers and employees need to fully adhere to the standards required by the EU working laws and this is to protect all those within the work force.
As well as the wider laws, health and safety inspectors carry out regular checks on employment establishments to investigate whether everything is as it should be. This means things like machinery being kept to a safe standard and regularly maintained, that the atmosphere is chemical free and well ventilated and that staff are fully trained to do the job they’re employed for as well as many other requirements.
If you have experienced the misfortune of being involved in an accident in your place of work in Gravesend then you could benefit greatly from receiving no obligation advice and as the Government abolished legal aid and free advice for this at the same time the Citizens Advice Bureau also greatly reduced their efforts to assist.
