    West Somerset Accident at Work Claim

    Employers wishing to avoid having to deal with a West Somerset accident at work claim can do so by boning up on their health and safety in the workplace procedures and ethics. The truth of the matter is that most accidents that cause injury are easily avoidable and if businesses are either new, or they are replacing the person charged with the responsibility for looking after health and safety, all of the necessary information they need can be found on the HSE (Health and Safety Executive) website.

    The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992

    The backbone of the health and safety at work system for most businesses is a publication entitled: Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992. This publication covers all businesses except companies involved with construction work on construction sites, businesses in or on a ship, and mining operations carried out underground.

    Health and Safety topics

    As well, as including all of the regulations, it also contains an approved code of practice with guidance. It will assist employers in understanding all regulatory requirements regarding such subjects as:

    • Cleanliness
    • Dimensions of work areas
    • Escalators
    • Falls, or falling objects
    • Floor conditions
    • Gates and the walls
    • Lighting
    • Provision of sanitary conveniences
    • Skylights and ventilators
    • Temperature
    • Traffic control
    • Transparent and translucent doors
    • Ventilation
    • Windows
    • Work stations and seating

    A good risk assessment culture will help to avoid a West Somerset accident at work claim being raised

    Good health and safety at work, is all about assessing risks in the workplace, and the best way of helping to avoid a West Somerset accident at work claim, or indeed an accident at work claim that originates anywhere here in the UK, is by either introducing a risk assessment culture and system, or, if you already have one in place, by making sure that it is kept current. A good place to start is on the Risk Management page of the HSE website.
