Merton claims for injuries at work


Merton claims for injuries at work can often be the result of an accident caused through the negligence of an employer. They have a legal duty to safeguard the well being of all their employees while they are at work by following the health and safety rules that relate to their trade or profession.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) website has an A-Z index for every trade or profession in the UK, and what each one needs to do to comply with the law and if more employers followed the guidelines, there would be less accidents at work, and less innocent victims making a Merton accident at work claim.

The negligence of employers that can result in Merton claims for injuries at work

Apart from the laws that apply to their own particular trade or profession there are many general laws that apply to all employers, such as:

  • Risk assessments should be carried out and the hazards they find should be eradicated. If there is not a total remedy for a danger, all staff must be warned about it and there should be plenty of clearly understandable warnings notices to remind them.
  • There should be a health and safety policy in place, which every employee knows and implements. The employer needs to make sure their staff abide by the rules, otherwise they could be putting workmates at risk of having an injury at work.
  • Procedures need to be in place in case of an emergency situation, and all employees need to know what they are. Regular fire drills are part of this.
  • Whether it is completed manually or on a computer, there should be an accident book in which all accidents in the work place are recorded, no matter how trivial they might seem at the time.
  • Any serious accidents should be reported to HSE, as they will want to investigate, and help to prevent a similar accident happening again. They will also compile an accident report, and these reports often apportion the blame for the accident.

These five things are a drop in the ocean of the rules and regulations that need to be in place, but none of it is as bad as it sounds, as long as employers and employees work together, they just become part of the normal working day.
