    Workplace accident claim in Mountain Ash

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Mountain Ash

    Work should be the safest place you visit during the day. It is surrounded by laws, regulations and procedures that are designed to keep you safe from any harm. However what if your employer or one of your colleagues does not follow the guidelines?

    Taking short cuts in health and safety is very dangerous as it leaves accidents waiting to happen. By making or ignoring a hazard they are responsible for a situation that could result in a workplace accident claim in Mountain Ash.

    Safety In The Workplace

    In addition to all the laws in place for health and safety and food hygiene there are physical items which are also key parts to ensuring you are safe.

    Yellow wet floor signs are very common to see as every business should use them to indicate a slippery patch on the floor. If there was a wet patch with no marker this would be open to a workplace accident claim in Mountain Ash. The high visibility of the marker attracts attention to warn any individual of the existing hazard.

    Other safety items include fire extinguishers and safety guards on machinery. Both equally as important as the other they can both be used inappropriately as shortcuts in the workplace.

    Safety guards are often removed as they make a task take longer and fire extinguishers have been known to be used as doorstops. Both of these instances risk the safety of all those on the premises.

    Any accident in the workplace will be logged on to the internal accident report form. If you are the individual involved in the accident you must obtain a copy of that form, as it could be used as evidence in a case.

    Whilst at the scene of the accident any details of present colleagues should be taken down as they may later be called upon by a legal representative. Any statements can be collected at a later date during the claim.

    Being involved in an accident at work can be a very trying time when you are aware of negligence. Though the security of a job is important it is more important that you don’t suffer from injuries you sustained from an accident that was not your fault.
