    Office accident compensation in Thanet

    Suffering hearing loss in an accident at work and claiming office accident compensation in Thanet

    Your eyesight and your hearing are important; probably your two most important senses. And if you should suffer damage to either of them because of an accident at work that wasn’t your fault you may be eligible to make a claim office accident compensation in Thanet.

    Your employer has a duty of care to ensure that you and the other employees at your place of work are exposed to as little risk as possible and a failure to do so is a failure in their duty of care. Indeed Accident Advice Helpline have helped many individuals just like you make successful applications for office accident compensation in Thanet.

    Damage to your hearing at work

    When at work if you are exposed to high levels of noise then you should be properly kitted out with equipment that reduces the amount of noise that is actually absorbed by your ears. If your employer fails to provide such equipment then they are clearly in breach of health and safety protocols and are exposing you to higher than acceptable levels of risk.

    Mufflers, headsets, ear protectors, ear plugs etc. should all be available to you and your work colleagues if you work in an environment where loud noise is something you have to deal with on a daily basis. For example, if you work on a factory floor where heavy machinery is in operation during the course of your working day or shift. You may be entitled to make a claim for office accident compensation in Thanet if you have been made to undertake your work in an environment without such equipment being available to you to protect your hearing.
