Apprentices making no win no fee compensation Doncaster claims
No matter who you are, where you work, what you do, or the sort of employment contract you have, you always have the right to expect that you are going to be safe whilst at work. This is a legal right and in fact your employer has a recognised duty of care to ensure that you are not put at risk of harm.
As a result your employer must do all they can to ensure that steps are taken to keep you safe from harm, and if they fail to take these steps and you are injured as a result, then you could be entitled to make a no win no fee compensation Doncaster claim.
When you start a new job you might be required to undergo specific training to ensure that you are able to do this job safely and effectively. This might mean that you have to be shown how to use internal software, or specific equipment and machinery.
If you are an apprentice then you could be able to make a no win no fee compensation Doncaster claim if your employer does not train you addequately. This will include basic things such as where the fire exits are and what the fire procedures are. If you are not shown these, and there is a fire, and you have no idea how to get out of the building safely, you could be put at extreme risk. Should an injury occur as a result of this failing you will be entitled to make a no win no fee compensation Doncaster claim as your employer would have failed in their duty of care.
Training should also be provided to make sure that you know what safety equipment you should wear, if this is appropriate. You should know where it is to be located or what you need to do to request it. Your employer should also ensure that the equipment is suitable for the task at hand. These are simple checks to perform and can mean the difference between a near miss and a personal injury compensation claim being filed.
