Workplace Accident Compensation

0

We work, we get paid but shouldn’t we also expect to be safe?

Nobody likes to make a fuss. We go to work each day, dreaming of that lottery win. But we accept our lot. We know that this is the deal – we work, we get paid.

But occasionally, an employer gets careless or negligent. Health and Safety can end up taking a back seat and risk assessments don’t get completed. Equipment maintenance can sometimes get left behind and out of date machinery doesn’t get replaced.  Unfortunately, for some employees this means that they get injured in an accident at work. If you have been injured at work and your accident could have been predicted and avoided, you are entitled to claim workplace accident compensation.

Preventing is better than curing

Within your workplace, your manager has legal responsibilities including the responsibility to do everything they can to keep you safe. The Health and Safety at Work Act contains regulations that cover every aspect of work, from large industrial equipment and tools to chairs and computer workstations. Part of your manager’s duty is to follow health and safety legislation and assess the risks of every aspect of your work, taking steps to mitigate or limit those risks. Where your manager can’t fully limit a risk, such as with industrial equipment or vibrating hand tools, they have a duty to train you to handle the risk and avoid injury. Your manager should also monitor your activity at work and record and report any incidents or accidents.

While Health and Safety may sound ‘over the top’ it is designed to make it safe for you to work. Preventing is, after all, better than curing.

But what if it goes wrong…

Sometimes prevention doesn’t work. Sadly, this is often because managers don’t take health and safety seriously enough. They may cut corners, decide that the risk isn’t worth worrying about or they may simply not bother finding out what their duty under health and safety involves.

If you suffer an injury at work that could have and should have been prevented by your manager, you are entitled to workplace accident compensation.
