No doubt you are familiar with Somerset, a county in the south-west of England. As the name suggests, South Somerset is a district within that county, and yes, it does take up much of the southern part of the county. This government district boasts a population of 165,600, as estimated in 2016. It is rare for a South Somerset accident at work to occur, but any area with a population of that size or larger is likely to experience the odd accident from time to time.
All government districts have a selection of settlements within them. These settlements will also have a wide variety of businesses present, from shops to warehouses, and office buildings to other businesses that might be more familiar for that area. All businesses will present risks to their employees, but the employer’s responsibility is to identify those risks and resolve them, so there is little to no risk of an employee being hurt while doing the job they are employed for.
Examples of a possible South Somerset accident at work scenario
Lots of things could happen at work to cause an accident, although few do. Most of the time, risk assessments, preventative measures, and proper adherence to health and safety laws means few workers end up being hurt while they get on with their jobs. Employers pay close attention to what might happen to their employees while they do a range of jobs, and that means there are few scenarios that can be raised where there is a chance someone could be hurt.
Of course, if the employer doesn’t take appropriate care, doesn’t follow the health and safety rules, and doesn’t make sure their employees are always able to work in complete safety, something could potentially happen to cause one or more employees injury. If this should occur, it would be clear that someone would be able to potentially bring a compensation claim against the responsible third party, in this case, the employer.
