Accidents can be avoided if standards are met
Every workplace has a set of health and safety procedures that should be adhered to in order to reduce the risk of accidents. With this in mind, if you have been the unfortunate victim of an accident that wasn’t your fault and occurred within the last three years then you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
This is all the more likely if the accident was caused because health and safety procedures were ignored, the provision of safety equipment was not met, or if machinery that was used as part of your job was not maintained to a high level. In the workplace it is the responsibility of your employer and their team of health and safety and first aid personnel to ensure that potential accidents are identified and prevented before any injury can be caused. Failure to identify such potential accidents could result in you and others around you being injured unnecessarily and spending time off work recovering from injuries that should have been avoided.
Your employer’s obligation in the workplace
Your employer is legally obliged to ensure that every effort is made to reduce the chances of an accident occurring or injuries being caused to their workforce. Failing in this duty is something that can result in accidents occurring that are likely to result in members of the workforce (including you) being rendered unable to work for long periods of time whilst recovering from their otherwise avoidable injuries.
