Employers’ duties and employees’ right to use a lawyer in Tenterden
All employers in the UK have a duty to protect the health, safety and well being of their employees while they are at work, and if they fail in this duty, all employees have the right to use an injury lawyer in Tenterden if they are injured in a accident that was not their fault. Among the things employers should do is:
- Have a health and safety policy that all employees have to follow
- Carry out risk assessments and act on the findings
- Have procedures in place for emergency situations
- Maintain all plant and equipment
- Train staff to use the plant and equipment
- Record all accidents, no matter how minor they may seem
- Report serious accidents to HSE
These are just a small sample of the rules and regulations they need to follow, the full list being available on the HSE website.
A fall at work can be serious
Mentioning a fall at work conjures up an image of someone slipping or tripping and getting back up, more shaken than anything else. But falls at work can be very serious if for instance the fall was from height, or into moving machinery. Serious accidents happen in workplaces all of the time, most of them being slip, trip or fall accidents.
