People never expect to get injured at work. Of course some occupations and trades carry more risk than others. However, whatever the level of risk, employers are duty bound by law to ensure the workplace is as safe as possible. This applies to office workers, factory workers, and construction workers; no matter what the occupation or workplace.
Incidents that you might launch a Tredegar accident at work claim for
You might need to launch a Tredegar accident at work claim if you tripped over a trailing lead in an office and got injured, or if you got caught up in the moving parts of a machine on the factory floor. The main point is that in order to be able to claim compensation, the blame for the accident has to lay with a third party.
To protect employees, the health and safety at work regulations state that employers must carry out risk assessments for all tasks that staff undertakes. The purpose of these risk assessments is to identify any hazards. Once identified, these hazards can then be mitigated by changing procedures, fitting guards to machinery, and/or issuing appropriate PPE (personal protective equipment). PPE can take the form of ear defenders, hi-viz vests and jackets, and hard hats.
It’s also important that employees are correctly trained. This relates to anything, from things such as learning how to lift heavy loads manually, or working at height. Similarly, employees must be properly trained in how to work with machinery safely.
If an employer fails to fulfill this duty of care and an employee is injured, that is when a Tredegar accident at work claim (or claims anywhere here in the UK) ought to be made.
