Accidents at work are not confined to the types of industries that are commonly regarded as dangerous, such as the construction and agricultural industries. They can occur in any industry, at any time, and they often result from health and safety breaches.
For example, office accidents in Kingston upon Hull can result in serious injuries, even though the workplace may not be considered particularly dangerous.
Counting the cost of health and safety breaches
The Health and Safety at Work Act outlines the responsibilities employers have towards protecting the health, safety and welfare of their employers. If an employer fails to fulfil their obligations, and thus causes an employee to become injured at work, they or their insurers may be liable to pay compensation.
Receiving compensation for office accidents in Kingston upon Hull
All employers are legally obliged to have liability insurance to cover the cost of office accidents in Kingston upon Hull claims and this means that an injured employee can make a claim safe in the knowledge that their actions will not put their employer out of business.
Although people often worry about making a claim against an employer, this isn’t something you should be too concerned about. If you make a claim following genuine office accidents in Kingston upon Hull, your employer won’t be able to punish you.
