All employers are responsible for protecting staff, visitors and contractors from injuries and accidents. That means ensuring employees have the right equipment for whatever task they are doing, and that this is kept in a good, safe condition.
Places of work must also be tidy and safe, while corridors and floor areas must be hazard-free, and doors must not be obstructed.
Safety wear must also be provided where required, and anyone who needs it should get the right training in how to lift heavy objects safely. If you’ve had an accident or been injured at work through no fault of your own within the last three years, you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim for compensation.
While many may understandably be nervous of bringing action against their employer, it is important to remember that an accident can be costly. You may be forced to take time off work or pay for expensive medical treatment.
What’s more, it may mean that your employer takes the right action so that this sort of thing doesn’t happen to anyone else.
