It is an employer’s responsibility to prevent accidents from occurring in their workplace. It is important that employers make regular health and safety checks and carry out daily risk assessments. They should do regular electrical tests and look for possible dangers before they happen. It is essential that employers make sure all staff are trained in health and safety and manual handling if needed.
Employers can send their employees on training courses to show them how to identify possible dangers and hazards before they happen to help avoid accidents. The course also teaches people how they can avoid injuries and teaches them about the different warning signs and what they mean so that they understand the dangers involved.
An employer should do everything within their power to make sure they are not on the receiving end of a Scarborough accident at work claim for compensation. However all employers should also ensure they have adequate insurance in place to cover themselves if an accident does happen on their work premises and they are liable for it.
Common injuries sustained from accidents in the workplace that lead to people wanting to make a Scarborough accident at work claim for compensation for their personal injuries are: fractures, sprains, torn ligaments, spinal injuries, ear injuries, electrical burns, electric shocks, whiplash and head injuries.
Unfortunately no matter how many precautions an employer takes to ensure the safety of their staff accidents can still happen. If you have sadly suffered one or more of these injuries in an accident at work that was not your fault in the past three years and you needed medical treatment then you could make a claim to recover any added expenses your injury has caused and claim for your injury and the suffering you have had to go through.
