What to do if you’ve had a workplace accident
If you have been involved in an accident in your place of work, it is advised that you note the accident’s events in the workplace accident book. This ensures that all the accident’s details are correctly recorded, and avoids any confusion further on down the line with regard to what happened.
It is also a good idea to take the names and contact details of any witnesses to the accident. In addition to this, take photographs of the scene of the accident soon after it happens. These basic steps will help you a lot if you decide to claim compensation.

They will have an employer’s liability insurance policy, which covers them in the event an employee makes an accident at work compensation claim. If compensation is awarded, it is the insurer who would pay your compensation and not your employer.
