    Compensation after a workplace accident in South Staffordshire

    In terms of work-related injuries, falls from a height are probably one of the most common and serious. In 2011/12, there were 40 fatalities and 3.400 injuries caused by falls from a height. These occurred mainly in the construction industry.

    It is the responsibility of an employer to ensure that working practices are safe, and the risk of injury to employees is minimised. However, in the majority of falls from a height resulting in injury, it was proven that the employers were at fault.

    The main failing on the part of employers was a lack of adequate risk assessment. This means that workers are carrying out their jobs in dangerous situations, without proper safeguards.

    This can often result in a lack of appropriate training right through the chain of command, and often means corners are cut. Often a failure in leadership means that no one takes responsibility for ongoing health and safety matters. This results in issues arising on sites that aren’t dealt with.

    While staff are required to take personal responsibility for health & safety, employees can find themselves under pressure to take risks or work with unsafe practices, or they hear their complaints ignored.

    Employers should avoid working from height where possible. If it is unavoidable, they should ensure that adequate training is given, protective gear is issued, and that machinery and equipment is properly and regularly maintained.

    If you were injured in such an accident and you feel your employer was at fault, you might consider claiming after a workplace accident in South Staffordshire, or elsewhere in the UK.
