    Workplace accident claim in West Oxfordshire

    West Oxfordshire is a wonderful place to go on holiday if you are so minded. With locations such as Chipping Norton and Witney included in the area (this part of the county of Oxfordshire covers the Cotswolds), you will certainly enjoy your time there. Of course, some work in the area and still more live there permanently. Around 100,000 residents live in the region, although not all of them work locally. Wherever workers are from, though, a workplace accident claim in West Oxfordshire is a rarity indeed.

    This is good news because it shows how safe the overwhelming majority of workplaces are in the 21st century. We do hear about accidents in workplaces on the news sometimes, especially when they are very serious. However, these are the definite minority.

    How are workplace accidents prevented?

    The Health and Safety at Work Act came into force back in the 1970s, and when it did, there was an almost immediate drop in the number of accidents that were occurring to people at work. The Act also ensures there is less chance of people developing injuries over the long term as well, such as those caused by excessive stress or repetitive movements. Think of RSI and carpal tunnel syndrome, which can occur in all kinds of jobs.

    Thankfully, very few people will find themselves in the position of being injured while doing their normal jobs. Employers use risk assessments, safety measures, protective equipment and safety guards as just a few of the ways they can minimise the risk of injury for their workers.

    What if something happened to you?

    Perhaps you’ve been looking online for information on making a workplace accident claim in West Oxfordshire following an injury you ended up with while doing your work. If you think that injury was entirely preventable, and your employer may potentially have been neglectful of their health and safety duties, it is worth learning more.
