    If you are injured in a fall at work and you have followed all of the rules and regulations, then this could be your employer’s fault. If this is the case, you would be able to make a personal injury compensation claim against your boss, using the solicitors in High Littleton at Accident Advice Helpline to help.

    If you are injured in a fall at work, contact the solicitors in High Littleton

    If you are injured in a fall at work, then this would be classed as a slip, trip or fall accident. Falls at work are a common work injury, in fact they account for more than 40% of work related injuries throughout the country.

    They happen in many different ways. Victims trip over obstructions that should not have been there, they can slip on wet floor surfaces or spillages that should have been cleared up and sometimes they fall from height, maybe because of the lack of a safety rail.

    Some of these accidents can have serious consequences because:

    • If the obstruction you trip over was next to a piece of machinery you could be thrown into the moving parts.
    • If the spillage was at the top of a flight of stairs you could slip all the way down them.
    • If the fall from height was onto a concrete floor you would be lucky to survive.

    Prevention of a fall at work according to the rules and regulations, could also prevent the need to use the solicitors in High Littleton

    The HSE set out the rules and regulations of how to prevent a fall at work from happening. They say employers should do everything they can to protect the health and safety of their employees, and employees have a responsibility not to do anything that would put themselves or anyone else in danger. This includes reporting any potential dangers to their employer so that preventative action can be taken.

    The usefulness of risk assessments

    Risk assessments can be a major part of keeping the workplace safe, and should be carried out on a regular basis.

    You do not need to have lots and lots of paperwork for your risk assessment, just notes are adequate about what has been found, where they found it and what measures they can do to prevent accidents happening. Involving the employees in this process can be helpful, as they might spot a hazard the employer has missed. This may just prevent using the solicitors in High Littleton.
