    No win no fee compensation in Eastbourne

    Employer Liability

    All employers have a duty and responsibility to the people who work for them to ensure that the work place is a safe and healthy environment for them to be in. This means that employers must be fully aware of the potential for any harm to be caused, and must take the necessary steps to ensure that these are minimised or completely removed where necessary.

    If an employer fails to do this, and a member of staff is involved in an accident and injured as a result, then a no win no fee compensation in Eastbourne claim can be made. This means that compensation is sought directly from the employer via their insurance policy.

    Risk Assessments

    With potentially hundreds of staff working for them how does an employer ensure that all aspects of the work place are safe? One of the best ways to do this is to ensure that policies are in place to facilitate the regular production of risk assessments.

    A risk assessment is designed to identify any associated risks for each job that a member of staff might be instructed to complete. Once a risk has been identified then it provides the employer, or the individual charged with completing the assessment, an opportunity to look for ways in which that risk can be removed. If that risk cannot be removed, for example, if it is just a part of the job and cannot be avoided, then the employer must find ways to reduce that risk.

    For example, let’s look at the case of a cleaner. As part of their job a cleaner must work with certain chemicals. These chemicals are found to cause a risk of skin irritation, and perhaps breathing difficulties. The employer looks for an alternative chemical to do the same job, but unfortunately cannot find one. An employer who acts correctly would then conclude that the risk cannot be completely removed, so will take steps to protect his staff member.

    In order to avoid a claim for no win no fee compensation in Eastbourne the employer would make it a policy that anyone performing this task be made aware of the need to wear protective equipment, such as gloves and breathing masks, whilst mixing, transporting or using the chemicals. These items should then be provided, and staff informed how to obtain them or request replacement ones where necessary.

    Were an employer not to do this, and a member of staff later develops asthma or eczema as a result of their exposure, then an industrial no win no fee compensation in Eastbourne claim could be brought against them. The employer is then likely to be found to be liable.
