Badly maintained surfaces at work? Claim accident at work compensation in Pontarddulais
In the workplace, as with your home, you would not expect there to be loose carpets, tiles unsecured and sticking up, floorboards at angles and so on so whilst at work during the course of your working shift you would reasonably expect that these issues be taken care of by someone who has the authority to do so. Some may refer to this as housekeeping whilst others might consider it to be janitorial or even under the auspices of health and safety but whatever it comes under if you have suffered an accident as a result of such things you may be entitled to receive accident at work compensation in Pontarddulais. At Accident Advice Helpline we aim to help provide assistance and support to those who have been injured in the workplace through no fault of their own and if they are eligible, we help them receive the right amount of accident at work compensation in Pontarddulais in relation to their injuries and circumstances.
Uneven floors can cause trips, slips and falls
In the workplace we all have a lot to contend with so it is often the case that we don’t consider the possibility of having a trip, slip or fall because we expect that it is someone else’s responsibility from a health and safety angle to ensure that doesn’t happen. If it does happen and the injuries you have ended up with are the result of an accident that could have been avoided by the intervention of another party as part of their job then you may be entitled to receive accident at work compensation in Pontarddulais.
In the workplace we all have a responsibility for our own levels of health and safety – of course this is true but if you have been appointed in a role where you’re overall responsibility to ensure the safety of all employees and visitors then a failure in this department can be seen as a failure in your duty of care. You may be entitled to make a claim for accident at work compensation in Pontarddulais if you have suffered an accident because health and safety procedures have been overlooked or have been poorly implemented which has led to your accident unfolding.
Clearing up spills and removing obstacles

It is important to ensure that where possible spillages are quickly and carefully wiped up and obstacles are moved out of the way in public thoroughfares such as corridors, pathways and the likes.
