Whether you are an employee or employer, you have to make sure you do nothing that will endanger others while you are at work.

If they do not, and an employee is injured because of their negligence, the employee will be entitled to claim compensation and may well use the services of no win no fee Bampton lawyers at Accident Advice Helpline to do this.
No win no fee Bampton lawyers say ignorance is no excuse
It is up to employers to find out the rules and regulations governing safety in the workplace, and the fact they did not is no excuse if an employee is injured through their negligence. The employer should find the information they need, and it is readily available on the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) website as well as various other places.
HSE monitor workplaces to ensure that the rules are being followed, and as their one aim is to reduce the amount of work related accidents, they treat any violations very seriously. It is not unusual for them to prosecute an employer and this can result in heavy fines and in some cases imprisonment.
Reporting serious accidents
Serious accidents at work must be reported to HSE, and if they suspect that the employer has not done so, the employees should report it. HSE will check the problem out, and ensure it doesn’t happen to anyone else, closing the premises if necessary. The sorts of accidents they would expect to be reported are:
- Broken bones
- Collapse of scaffolding or walls etc.
- People overcome by gas or fumes
- An injury that would need you to have more than seven days off work
Any accident at work, if it was not your fault and you sustain injuries could mean you are entitled to make a personal injury claim and you should be contacting no win no fee Bampton lawyers to seek help with the process.
