Have you received the right training at work?
While some of us do not need to receive any specific training to do our jobs, others do. It is always important to make sure that an employee knows what they are doing whilst they are at work, otherwise they are likely to be unproductive and cost the company money.
However, when it comes to their health and safety, it is vital that people know what they are doing. If training is not offered and completed and a member of staff is injured as a result of their lack of knowledge or understanding, then an employer is likely to be found to be liable. This means that a claim for no win no fee compensation in East Staffordshire could be made against them and compensation therefore awarded to the staff member who was injured.
So, have you had the right training? Are you at risk of being injured if you haven’t had?
What things can you make a no win no fee compensation in East Staffordshire claim for?
Of course you can only make a no win no fee compensation in East Staffordshire claim if you have actually been involved in an accident and have been injured as a result. However, there are various situations in which an injury may take place, and provided that we can demonstrate that your employer is liable for that accident, then there is no reason that you can’t make a no win no fee compensation in East Staffordshire claim against them.
- PPE – PPE stands for “personal protection equipment” and it is used to keep you safe whilst you are performing potentially dangerous jobs. For example, you may be a cleaner who comes in to regular contact with chemicals that can cause skin irritation. As a result, your employer should have identified this risk and arranged for gloves to be worn. You may not be aware of this risk when you start your work, so it is vital that your employer arranges for you to be informed and trained on the appropriate steps to take.
- Fire safety – when you start a new job, or move to a new location, your employer should ensure that you are given a full orientation to help you familiarise yourself with the important things you need to be aware of. While this might include the staff facilities, it will also include where the nearest fire exits are and what the fire procedure is. If they fail to do this and you are trapped in the building during a fire, and injured as a result, you could make a no win no fee compensation in East Staffordshire claim.
