    Workplace accident in West Berkshire

    Have you been the unlucky victim of a workplace accident in West Berkshire? Were you hurt whilst performing any of the tasks associated with your job? If so then you may be entitled to make claim for compensation.

    When it comes to accidents at work, it is your employer’s responsibility to do all that is possible to ensure that all employees are kept safe. While it is not always possible to cover for every eventuality, your employer should still do all they feasibly can to make sure that people are not injured in an accident.

    If they do not keep everyone safe and an injury subsequently occurs, then they will be considered to have failed in their duty of care. They would, therefore, be responsible for your personal injury. In such a case, Accident Advice Helpline would be able to help you make a claim against them for financial compensation.

    Types of accidents that can be easily avoided

    As we have said, it may not be possible to avoid every single type of accident. In some cases, a workplace accident in West Berkshire may well still occur even after the employer has done all they can to minimise the potential for danger. However, there are some common types of accidents that can easily be prevented

    For example, it is possible to avoid slip or trip type accidents, and their associated injuries. An employer should perform a risk assessment on any work area. This should be done to establish how an accident in West Berkshire may occur. For instance, if there is known to be an area that is likely to generate spillages then appropriate flooring or warning signs should be in place. This will help to guard against the possibility of people slipping. Procedures should be put in place for these areas to be regularly checked and cleaned if necessary.

    If you work in a particularly hazardous environment then your employer should make sure that all members of staff are provided with the suitable training to be able to do their jobs safely. They should also make sure that they have the necessary personal protection equipment to guard against any type of injury which could result from a workplace accident in West Berkshire.
