Unfortunately for many workers, whether in office jobs or more physical work, accidents at work may occur. This is due to a number of factors, which we will look at in more detail below. If you have been in an accident at work, which wasn’t your fault and led to a personal injury, you may be entitled to compensation.
A law firm such as Accident Advice Helpline may be able to help you with your case as well as give you more advice on the claims process.
Health and safety breaches
There are a number of rules and regulations which must be adhered to under the Health and Safety Act and a failure to observe these could cause accidents in the workplace, whether through general negligence, improper risk assessments, failure to carry out safety checks and more.
Unfortunately the majority of these accidents could be prevented by proper health and safety checks. If you suffer an accident as a result of your employer’s negligence, you may be entitled to claim compensation.
Working with machinery
For those who work with machinery, whether it is heavy or loud, there are a number of accidents that could occur as a result. Staff should complete manual handling courses in order to deal with the moving of large and heavy equipment and complete necessary safety courses relevant to individual machinery.
A common problem caused by machinery is industrial deafness, which can be prevented by careful steps taken by your employer. If you suffer this type of injury, you may be able to contact a lawyer in Penryn, or a firm based elsewhere, to discuss making a claim.
