    Milford Haven accident at work claim

    Do you want to know more about a Milford Haven accident at work claim? Not many people would associate a cycling accident with an accident at work, but there are some jobs, such as postmen, police or couriers, where cycling can be part of the work. There are times when workers are injured while they are cycling in their job, and if the accident was caused by the negligence of their employer, they can make a Milford Haven, accident at work claim.

    How cycling accidents can result in a Milford Haven accident at work claim

    It does not matter what job you do, you employer has a legal duty to protect your health and safety while you are at work, and one of the regulations says that they should supply you with whatever safety equipment and protective clothing you need to do your job safely, free of any charge to you. Failure to comply, could mean they have to face a Milford Haven accident at work claim, if an employee is injured while at work. We can help with a Milford Haven accident at work claim. Cyclists are very vulnerable on our roads, and to try and reduce the risk of serious injury if they are in an accident they should be properly attired, wearing such things as:

    • A well fitting, good quality safety helmet to reduce the risk of head injuries
    • Sturdy footwear to protect their feet
    • Knee pads and elbow pads to protect their joints
    • Something bright and colourful to make them more visible to other road users

    As well as making sure the cyclist is kitted out properly, the employer should also make sure the cycle is maintained in good order. Failing brakes could be the difference between life and death for the cyclist.

    Cyclists are one of the few people that are allowed on our roads without taking a test and without insurance. Employers should make sure anyone they ask to ride a cycle as part of the job, is proficient in cycle riding, and provide them with proper training if they are not. Simple things like knowing the Highway Code so they know how to behave towards other road users, and how to obey the road signs etc, is really important to help reduce the risk of them being in an accident while they are at work.
