While you are at work, you are under the care of your employer, and they have a duty to protect your health. They should, therefore, provide you with a safe way of doing your job, proper training, adequate and safe work equipment, including personal protective equipment (PPE) where appropriate, and colleagues who are capable of carrying out their jobs without putting you at risk of harm.
If your employer neglects their duty towards you, and you have a Windsor and Maidenhead accident at work as a result of their negligence, you may be entitled to make a claim against your employer’s insurance company. You may also have a potential Windsor and Maidenhead accident at work claim if your accident does not occur at your usual place of work, for example, if you suffer an accident on the roads while driving a company vehicle during work hours. Your employer still has the same duty regarding a safe place of work, safe systems of work and safe work equipment, regardless of whether you are working on or off their premises.
