    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Lawyer in Chichester


    For some, a betting shop is a place of employment – employees of betting shops enjoy the same rights regarding their health and safety as all other employees.

    This means that if an employer who is running a betting shop wants to avoid becoming involved in a betting shop compensation claim they should take adequate precautions to protect the health, safety and welfare of their employees.

    An employee can contact Accident Advice Helpline to start a betting shop injury compensation claim if they have been injured in an accident or incident that was not their own fault – this means that the employer did not take the appropriate precautions to prevent it. So what precautions should betting shop employers be taking to protect their employees and prevent betting shop compensation claims? Here are some possibilities:

    Preventing betting shop compensation claims

    Employers can help staff by providing training in how to deal with difficult and aggressive customers and in how to avoid confrontation. A barrier between the employees and the customers may be provided and a panic alarm sited away from the customer’s view. All incidents of abuse should be recorded and thoroughly investigated. In some circumstances the police may need to be approached for advice on what can be done to reduce the risk further. CCTV should be installed so that violent and aggressive incidents will be recorded and signs should indicate this. Signs should also indicate that violent and aggressive behaviour will not be tolerated.

    Robbery is also a continuing threat in premises like betting shops which handle a lot of cash. Staff should be instructed to cash up away from the public view and time-locked safes should be used so that staff do not have access to large quantities of cash. Gaming machines should be emptied during quiet times or when the shop is closed. Trips to the bank should be made at different times of the day and on different days of the week.
