Employers are required by law to protect the health and safety of their employees in the workplace and failure to comply can have nasty repercussions. Employees could be injured and employers could face prosecution as well as a personal injury claim if the employee contacts no win no fee Campton solicitors.
It is not just the one off accidents that employers need to be careful of. They also need to make sure their staff is protected from long term conditions such as:
- Industrial deafness
- Repetitive strain injuries
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Hand arm vibration syndrome also know as vibration white finger and dead finger
- Conditions related to exposure to dangerous chemicals and substances
A victim does not still have to be employed by the employer to make a claim if they can show that it was that particular job that caused their problem. Some of the illnesses can take many years to develop, but this does not stop victims using no win no fee Campton solicitors to make a personal injury claim.
How an employer can avoid facing no win no fee Campton solicitors with a personal injury claim
Ignorance is no defence if an employee is injured at work. The employer should make sure they know all the health and safety guidelines they should be following. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) have a website where all these can be found, both general and trade specific rules and regulations that employers should comply with.
A phone call to HSE will get them all the help they need to make their workplace safe for their staff. HSE work tirelessly to reduce the number of accidents at work, and will gladly assist employers who ask for help.
This is a far better option than letting employees be injured because of their negligence.
