All employers have a duty of care to their staff, whether they work in an office, shops, or factory. This duty of care is designed to protect all members of staff, regardless of their seniority or length of service, from accident and injury. Generally staff are protected by employers ensuring that the workplace is hazard free, that all equipment is fully functioning and maintained on a regular basis, and that the appropriate training is provided to all staff members to ensure that they are not exposing themselves to risk by operating a piece of equipment that they are not trained to do so safely.
If you feel that your employer has failed in their duty if care, and that this failure has resulted in an accident which has caused you injury, then speak to an Accident Advice Helpline personal injury solicitor in Scarcroft today to discuss the best way to proceed with your claim.
If you work in a factory then there are various ways you could be injured if your employer has failed in their duty of care.
- Dangerous machinery – if your employer fails to maintain and repair machinery and/or equipment on a regular basis, then you could be injured if there is a fault or malfunction. Equally, it is your employers responsibility to ensure that you receive all the necessary and appropriate training to be able to operate such machinery or equipment. In fact, anyone that uses the machinery should be appropriately trained as you could equally be injured by someone else who, through no fault of their own, does not know what they are doing.
- Lifting heavy objects – you could be injured as the result of lifting heavy objects. You should be trained in proper manual handling techniques, or appropriate equipment should be provided to ensure you do not have to lift such objects on your own.
- Slips, trips and falls – slips, trips and falls can occur as a result of poor lighting, poor housekeeping, or poor maintenance of an area of building.
If you have been injured through any of these incidents contact an injury solicitor in Scarcroft today to see if you can claim.
