The employers in the United Kingdom have a legal duty of care to their employees to ensure their health and safety while they are at work. There are strict health and safety laws which an employer must abide by. Employers also have a legal duty to protect their employees from the long term condition that could be contracted if their working conditions are not right.
The law means that an employer must protect their employees from anything that may cause them harm, controlling the risks. They should provide their staff with the risks that are present in the workplace, explain the procedures they have in place to protect them and train all their staff in the ways they can deal with the risks. The employer must carry out regular risk assessments.
Employers should display the approved Health and safety poster in a prominent position and provide all the employees with a leaflet. If you think your employer is exposing you to risks you can make a complaint to the HSE unless it is too late and an accident has already happened.
Should an employer fail to adhere to these laws then the employee will be able to make an accident at work claim for compensation because they have been injured due to the employer’s negligence.
If you are injured at work due to the negligence of your employer as the accident was not your fault, if you needed medical attention for the injuries you sustained, and all this happened no more than three years ago you should be making an accident at work claim in Wolverhampton to get the compensation you deserve.
