Work based accidents
One of the most common ways for someone to suffer a back injury is as a result of a fall from height. Unfortunately our injury solicitors see a lot of work based falls from height, where an employee has been seriously injured as a result of an accident which occurred in the work place.
In such situations it is often possible to make a claim against an employer if they have failed to ensure the safety of their staff. This is often as a result of poor or inadequate training, or due to lack of health and safety policies and protocols.
Falls from Scaffolding
If you work on or around scaffolding as part of your job then you are of course at increased risk of experiencing a fall from height, and being injured as a result.
There are various laws and regulations in place to try to help ensure the safety of such workers, for example:
- The Personal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations
- The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations
- The Work at Height Restrictions
These regulations are designed to collectively ensure that workers are supplied with suitable personal protective equipment whenever they are exposed to any form of risk of injury at work. In the case of working on scaffolding this could include safety harnesses and hard hats. All equipment supplies must be safe and in good working order as well as being suitable for the job. If the personal protective equipment is not working then this would be a breach of the regulations. Equally, all work to be conducted at height should be properly planned and appropriate risk assessments should be carried out prior to work commencing.
