Your employer has the power to prevent an accident at work from happening, by following the health and safety rules and regulations. If they do not do this and you suffer an injury because of an accident at work, then you may want to make an injruy claim by using the Southend-on-Sea fall at work lawyers from Accident Advice Helpline.
Some of us think that all of this new health and safety stuff is restrictive and costly, but it could possibly one day save your life, and then you would be so glad the rules are in place. If you have been involved in an accident then you could claim compensation by using the Southend-on-Sea car accident solicitors.
Trying to prevent an accident at work and using the Southend-on-Sea fall at work solicitors
Preventing an accident at work is not as difficult as it may sound, but it does depend on which industry you work in. There are some industries that are more dangerous than others, a building site being more hazardous than a shop. Working in the construction industry, warehousing or farming are the worst three which statistically show that you have a higher chance of dying in these industries than any other.
The majority of people believe that working in an office is fairly risk free, but an accident can happen in an office just like in any other workplace. Below are some examples of the common accidents that can happen working in an office:
- Trailing wires are very dangerous as they cause someone to trip. If they fell onto a desk corner perhaps, they should suffer brain damage
- Loose carpets or damaged flooring
- Electrical faults can give nasty electric shocks and create awful injuries
- Lack of room can cause constant twisting and turning, something that should be avoided
- Repetitive actions such as the constant use of a keyboard can cause the industrial condition of carpal tunnel syndrome
If your boss has followed the health and safety rules and regulations then you are less likely to suffer an injury because of one of these accidents. Contact the lawyers from Accident Advice Helpline if you have been involved in an accident through no fault of your own and you want to make an injury compensation claim.
