Accidents at work
If you have been injured in an accident at work, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim against your employer. Employers have a legal responsibility for the health and safety of their employees, so if you have an accident you may be able to demonstrate that your employer has been negligent in that duty. For example, your boss should carry out a very thorough risk assessment before any work is undertaken to minimize the risk of accidents. It’s a case of trying to foresee what might go wrong and taking steps to ensure (as far as possible) that it won’t. Some accidents at work occur because a risk assessment has not been carried out adequately (or at all, in some cases).
Accidents at work can also occur if a colleague behaves negligently, although if this can be proved it may still be possible to make a personal injury compensation claim against an employer because he or she had not provided adequate training for that person.
If you have an accident at work, you should inform the appropriate member of staff and have the details logged in the accident book. It should then be reported to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) by your employer. If you believe that the accident will not be reported to the HSE, you can report it directly to them.
