Powys is one of the biggest – if not the biggest – counties in Wales. It takes up much of the border with England, yet has a population reaching only about 133,000 in size. As you can imagine, there are many attractions within an area of this size, particularly given its geography. There are cave systems, walks (including Offa’s Dyke Path) and numerous castles as well. Even though many tourists come here every year, very few will have the need to consider making Powys personal injury claims.
All tourist attractions have a duty to ensure their visitors (and employees) are able to enjoy their facilities without any danger of being injured. This can happen in many ways if appropriate health and safety rules aren’t followed.
Where do potential risks lie?
In reality, any location – whether it is a tourist attraction or not – can pose possible risks if the people in charge are not doing their duties in terms of health and safety measures. There are cases where people have been injured while coming into contact with hazards that could have easily been avoided.
Slips, trips and falls can be common occurrences in all kinds of areas and locations. Everything that can be done to avoid such things happening should be done, in order to minimise these kinds of mishaps. Even though a simple slip sounds like a fairly ordinary thing, it can be quite serious if the person falls awkwardly.
