    The responsibility of an employer

    When you work for someone, your employer has a general responsibility to ensure that you are kept safe, or as safe as possible whilst you are at work. This is a legal responsibility that extends to all staff members regardless of the nature of their contract, and encompasses many different areas of the working environment.

    If an employer fails in their responsibility for any reason and an accident occurs as a result, then the injured party might have a legal right to make a no win no fee* compensation Derbyshire Dales claim against them. This is where Accident Advice Helpline comes in, as we are a law firm who specialise in helping people make personal  injury compensation claims.

    Education and training

    In the first instance your employer has to ensure that all staff members are provided with the necessary information to perform their jobs safely,and to keep them safe in general within the work area. For example, this will include ensuring that all new members of staff know where the fire exits are and what the fire procedure is.

    They should also be advised of any areas within the work place that are not safe for them to enter. If your employer does not do this and you are left to wander into a dangerous area because it has not been signed appropriately then you could make a no win no fee* compensation Derbyshire Dales claim if you are injured as a result.

    Training is also important because there may be aspects of your job that could pose a risk if not performed properly. Even in the safest of environments, perhaps in an office, you could be at risk of injury if you have not received manual handling training, for example. If you have not been trained to lift heavy items safely, you might injure your back, which in turn could mean you having to take lots of time off work.

    Premises

    Your employer also has a duty to ensure that the environment in which you are working, is safe. Failings to adequately maintain equipment and so on could result in no win no fee* compensation Derbyshire Dales claims being made. Of course, these may not fall immediately under your employers jurisdiction, so your Accident Advice Helpline solicitor will need to investigate whether they are the right person to make a legal no win no fee* compensation Derbyshire Dales claim against.
