One of the more common injuries that are reported are people having falls at work. Any serious injuries that occur, should be reported to the HSE (Health and Safety Executive) who regulate and monitor health and safety issues in the workplace.
At the HSE, over the last few years, they have tightened up on their rules and regulations, especially in certain industries, such as construction sites, because if someone has a fall from height, it is more likely to be more serious and sometimes even ends in death.
If you suffer an injury at work and you were an innocent victim, then you should speak to the solicitors in Ferndown at Accident Advice Helpline, so they can assist you in making a personal injury claim.
Your employers responsibilities
Every employers has a legal responsibility towards their staff members.
- They have to protect the health and safety of all employees and anyone else affected by the work, or visitors to their business.
- Most employers have to have employers liability insurance with minimum cover of £5,000,000.
What is Liability insurance?
The majority of bosses should have liability insurance. Not everyone has to, there are some exceptions to that rule, for example, government departments and agencies do not always need it.
However, it does not mean that they are immune to having to pay compensation if someone falls at work, it just means they have to pay the damages out of their own funds.
The people at the HSE also look at the employers liability insurance to make sure the bosses who are supposed to have this insurance, do so. There are penalties and fines for the people comply with this rule of £2500 per day for the uninsured period.
