Are you making Walsall personal injury claims after working in a maintenance role?
Employees who take on a maintenance job role can often find themselves with a range of duties. Whilst some maintenance job roles mainly involve tasks such as groundskeeping or cleaning, they can also require employees to undertake structural or electrical work.
If you work in a maintenance role, it’s important that you are fully qualified to carry out the tasks required and that you are given the appropriate equipment to use. If, for example, your employer needs electrical work to be carried out, you will only be able to do this if you are a qualified and certified electrician.
In some instances, employers can expect too much from their employees and they can ask them to perform tasks which aren’t, strictly speaking, within their job role. If you are asked to perform tasks that you aren’t qualified for, it’s important to discuss this with your employer, rather than carrying out the work.
However, if you do perform work for your employer, it’s essential that all health and safety regulations are adhered to. If you’re forced to work in an unsafe environment and you suffer an injury, your employer could be held responsible and you could make Walsall personal injury claims.
In order to prove your employer’s liability, you will need to show that they were responsible for your injuries and that you didn’t cause the incident. Providing you can show that they are responsible for you getting hurt, there’s a good chance that you will be able to obtain compensation by making Walsall personal injury claims.
However, when employees are eligible to make Walsall personal injury claims against their employers, they are often reluctant to do so.
