Responsible employers strive to keep you safe at work. They comply with health and safety legislation and provide you with adequate training, instruction and supervision. Unfortunately, not all employers take their responsibilities seriously and this can sometimes lead to injuries being sustained in accidents at work in Monmouthshire.
Common workplace injuries
Workplace injuries in Monmouthshire can be divided into two categories: injuries that occur as a result of a single, traumatic event and injuries that occur over a long period of time.
Some of the most common causes of injuries that occur due to a single event include:
• Falls from heights
• Slips and trips
• Electric shocks
Injuries that occur over a long period of time typically result from jobs that involve repetitive motions. These jobs include:
• Typing jobs
• Factory work
Regardless of the type of job you do, your employer has a legal duty to take all reasonable steps to protect you against injuries. If you believe that your employer has failed in their duty to protect your health and safety, and this has caused you to sustain an injury in a Monmouthshire accident at work, you should contact a lawyer as soon as possible.
