    No Win No Fee Accident at Work

    Claim compensation for an accident at work

    The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) announced that in 2011/12:

    • 1.1 million people were suffering from a work related illness
    • 173 workers were killed at work
    • 111,000 were injured at work.

    Unfortunately the work place is not always as safe as it should be.

    Health and safety laws at work

    Ill health and injuries caused at work can have a huge impact on your health. All employers have a responsibility to protect the health and safety of their employees.

    The law requires employers to:

    • Provide protective clothing such as a hard hat, safety goggles etc where necessary
    • Ensure that machinery and equipment is safe to use and regularly serviced and maintained
    • Put measures in place to control dust, noise and fumes
    • Provide first aid equipment
    • Fire exits available and equipment available to extinguish fires
    • Provide necessary training so that you can carry out your job safely
    • Carry out risk assessments

    Common causes of accidents at work:

    • Faulty or inadequate equipment/materials
    • Lack of or improper training
    • Lack of or insufficient safety procedures

    In the event of an accident at work

    Every work place should have a procedure in place in case of an accident. If you are unsure of the protocol ask your manager. It is common practice to report the accident to your manager, you should also record the incident in the accident book. If your employer has a designated health and safety officer, they should also be informed. Depending on the seriousness of the injury, you should seek medical assistance as soon as possible. For serious accidents call 999. If you have a first aider at work, they should be informed too.
