Rossendale is in the south-eastern corner of Lancashire. While it is known as a district of Lancashire, it is also recognised as a borough. Around 65,000 people live there, with some working locally as well. Very few instances where a Rossendale accident claim is made relate to the workplace in any way.
Most people recognise that some jobs can be more dangerous than others. All jobs should be risk-assessed in every way to make sure any hazards that might be present are resolved. If this process is ignored or forgotten, there could be an increased chance someone might potentially be injured.
Squashed toes at work
We’ve all had the experience of dropping something on our toes or stubbing them on something while walking around in bare feet. While this can easily happen at home, we only have ourselves to blame when it does.
In the workplace, however, the odds of this happening must be considered. Some people are issued with steel toe-capped boots to protect their feet if they drop something on them. Some jobs might have an increased risk of this happening, which is why the boots are provided. If no risk assessment is carried out, or it is but the recommendation to wear steel toe-capped boots is not followed, it could mean you have a good case.
