Wolverhampton Accident at Work

0

Your employer has a legal ‘duty of care’ to look after your health, safety and welfare while you are at work. The law surrounding this duty is extremely strict, so your employer must work by the book to ensure that they do not fall foul of the law.

Actions your employer must take to prevent a Wolverhampton accident at work

Your employer can meet their legal obligations by:

  1. Carrying out risk assessments
    Your employer must carry out risk assessments to identify hazards and evaluate the extent of the risks they pose to your health and safety. By carrying out these assessments, your employer will be able to take appropriate action to prevent accidents at work.
  2. Providing you with comprehensive health and safety information
    Your employer should inform you of the health and safety risks they identified through their risk assessments, and educate you about the preventative and protective measures you can take to protect your health.
  3. Providing you with health and safety training
    You should receive adequate health and safety training on induction, upon your transfer to a new job or whenever new equipment is introduced into the workplace. Your employer must keep training records as evidence of this.
  4. Supplying you with personal protective equipment (PPE)
    If you need to perform a hazardous task, your employer must provide you with suitable personal protective equipment (PPE) and train you in its usage. Your employer must do more than simply store the equipment on the premises. They must make it readily available to you or, at the very least, provide you with instructions on where you can obtain it.
  5. Hiring competent employees
    Your employer has an obligation to hire competent employees, and to provide them with adequate training and instruction.
