Want to make a manual handling training claim in Carmarthenshire?
Lifting and handling is something we all have to do as part of our jobs, some more than others. Whether it is carrying a box of paper to the photocopier or working in a warehouse, lifting and handling is something that we are required to do and are required to be trained in how to do also. If you have not been properly trained and have been injured, you could be entitled to make a manual handling training claim in Carmarthenshire. Accident Advice Helpline as one of the UK’s leading law firms and highly respected personal injury specialists can help.
Your training is not something that is down to you. As an employee, your employer is responsible for ensuring you are correctly trained in all aspects of your job. Failing to do this is negligent and also a failure in their duty of care. You may be eligible to make a manual handling training claim in Carmarthenshire, if your injuries have been a direct result of your employer’s failure in your duty of care.
Accident Advice Helpline has been providing personal injury advice and securing compensation for the victims of lifting and handling accidents since 2000. Well respected and renowned for our success in securing compensation, we ensure our clients have all the information and advice they need and secure the compensation they deserve. Read on for more information and details on how to contact our team today, about making a manual handling training claim in Carmarthenshire, or any other type of claim anywhere in the UK.
You didn’t have enough training?
Regardless of what you do for a living, there is always a necessary level of training required. Receiving that training is something your employer is responsible for and they should ensure that training is kept up-to-date and improved upon as and when possible. If they do not, then they are putting you and your colleagues at risk of injury or worse.
Lifting and handling doesn’t sound as though it is a particularly complicated thing but when it comes down to it, it is important to understand how to move heavy or awkward items from one place to another.
If your employer has enforced that you move something heavy without proper training and it has resulted in you being injured, you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. As an individual with little or no training, you are not qualified to do this and any injuries sustained are a direct result of their lack of care and attention.
