    Southwark Accident at Work Claim

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Southwark

    The importance of carrying out risk assessments cannot be overstressed. When actioned correctly, a good risk assessment will spot any likely hazards that can arise during an operation or task so that they can be mitigated. If you work in Southwark, and you’ve been injured through no fault of your own while carrying out a task that had not been previously risk assessed, then your employer is guilty of compromising your right to health and safety in the workplace.

    You will be well within your rights to launch a Southwark accident at work claim, and we here at Accident Advice Helpline will put our no win no fee* claim process at your disposal.

    Worker trapped by the neck and killed in tragic accident

    An example of job going wrong that could have easily been prevented, happened when an employee at an abattoir in Galashiels, was involved with the removal of a support frame on the company’s premises. Unfortunately, as the frame was being dismantled, it collapsed, trapping the worker by the neck. Tragically the man died at the scene. The company is family owned and the dead man, was a member of the family.

    A risk assessment could have prevented the accident

    When the HSE (Health and Safety Executive) investigated the accident, they discovered that the company had not provided any instructions, training, or supervision, and that no appropriate risk assessment had been carried out for the task in question. Had it been, and a propping-up mechanism been provided, an extremely unfortunate accident, and loss of life, might have been avoided.

    Company suffers tragic loss and is fined £100,000

    In addition to the tragic loss of a loved one, the company was fined £100,000 for contravening sections 2(1); 33(1)(a); and 33(1)c of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, and Regulation 3(1)(c) of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999.
