    Stevenage Accident at Work Claim

    If you work in Stevenage and you are thinking about launching a Stevenage accident at work claim following a fall from height in the workplace, why not follow Esther Rantzen’s advice and recommendation, and put your trust in us here at Accident Advice Helpline (AAH). We’ve helped thousands of people to obtain the compensation they were due; in fact, last year alone (2013), we were successful in securing over £30 million worth of compensation for our clients.

    Member of the public alerts HSE to hazardous job

    A fall from height accident may well have been pre-empted, when a company was fined after one of its workers was spotted on a roof, jet washing the tiles, without any form protection in place. He was seen by a member of the public who reported the incident to the HSE (Health and Safety Executive). The eagle-eyed spotter took photographs of the event which he passed on to the HSE.

    Company used unsafe practices on a regular basis

    An investigation into the company conducted by the HSE, found that it was a regular occurrence for them to clean roofs in this way, i.e. without any safety equipment, (such as safety nets or fall arrest harnesses) in evidence. A prohibition notice was slapped on the company with immediate effect, stopping them from carrying out any more work without putting suitable safety controls in place.

    In breach of Health and Safety regulations

    The company were found to have breached:  Regulation 1(1)(b) of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, and Regulation 4 (1) of the Work at Height Regulations 2005. They received a fine of £10,000 and were instructed to pay costs of £1,277.

    How much money are you owed for your Stevenage accident at work claim?

    Fall from height accidents are responsible for over one third of all fatal injuries that happen in the workplace. Last year alone (2012/2013), they accounted for 25 fatalities. If you’ve been seriously injured in a fall from height incident at work, the first thing you might do is to establish the amount of compensation that you could be due to receive should you launch a Stevenage accident at work claim.
