Ystradgynlais is a complex word, indeed, and it is the name of a town in Wales. It sits in the far south-west corner of Powys, which is a large central region in the country. The town has a population of just over 8,000 people, and there is evidence that it dates back as far as the late 1300s. Today, some locals work in the area, while others travel further afield to their places of work. In every case, though, the chances that any of them would make a no-win, no-fee* Ystradgynlais compensation claim are slim, indeed.
This is great news, since no one would ever want to go through an accident at work. With that said, we know things can go wrong from time to time. The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 has prevented many accidents from occurring that might have happened in the past. We are safer at work today than we have ever been – a point that is easy to prove from data gleaned since the Seventies.
Have you had an accident at work?
Of course, it would probably be impossible to prevent all accidents at work. However, the health and safety regulations do make it easier to keep people safe at work. Most employers – the majority, in fact – do all they can to ensure people are safe and are never at risk of an accident. By conducting risk assessments and regularly checking there are no changes in the work being done, there is a good chance most workers will never go through any problems while they are at work.
You may, however, be reading this having experienced an accident in your own workplace. If you suspect that accident could easily have been avoided, it is worth seeking advice from someone who is trained in assessing the facts of such a situation. There is a possibility evidence exists that could be used to prove your employer was negligent, and you could learn more from it.
