No matter where you work in the UK, you should have a safe environment to work in, and employers have a legal duty to make sure that you do.
If your employer fails in this duty and you are injured because of their negligence, you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim using a personal injury lawyer in Meldreth.
How employers can avoid facing a personal injury lawyer in Meldreth
Every employer in the UK has a legal responsibility to protect the health and safety of their employees while they are in the workplace, and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) monitor employers to ensure they comply with the rules and regulations. There are specific rules for specific trades, but also general rules that apply to all employers. Some of these are:
- Carry out risk assessments and act on any findings
- Record accidents in an accident book
- Carry out regular fire drills
- Have procedures in place in case of an emergency situation, and make sure all staff are aware of these
- Make sure employees take proper breaks
- Make sure walkways are kept clean and free from obstruction
- Have a health and safety policy the details of which all staff are aware of
- Making sure employees have enough room to work in comfortably
- Ensure that all equipment and plant is in proper working order and safe
- Provide, free of charge, any protective clothing needed
- Ensure staff are properly trained to use any plant and equipment
