How to avoid injuries when working in a hazardous environment

Some jobs come with risks of accidents and injuries.

It is important to know what you should look for and how to protect yourself if you should endure an accident at work.

The responsibility for the safety of the workers lies with the employer. You should know that if you have been injured at work due to a lack of safety training or equipment that should have been provided to you by your employer, for example, then you can start a compensation claim.

The risk of injury is almost always present whether you’re working in an office or at a construction site.

If you suffer an injury from falling…

Falling is one of the most commonly occurring accidents. Even though you are facing the biggest risk of falling when working at heights, you can still fall on ground level by tripping or slipping.

Construction workers, window cleaners and other people whose job is to work at heights should be provided with all the mandatory safety equipment such as harnesses, hard hats and more.

If you’ve been injured after falling and you weren’t given the proper safety equipment, call our personal injury lawyer Southend on Sea to find out what you can do in terms of receiving compensation.

Slipping and tripping…

Slips and trips are also very common. You can fall victim to this type of accidents in almost any job. The two most common reasons for slipping are spilled liquid and wet floors.

It is pretty easy to avoid slipping on a wet floor as it is a requirement for the people cleaning the floor to put a sign that you can easily see.

Long term injuries

Not all injuries happen immediately. Some are more subtle, but can have even more serious consequences than the two we just mentioned.

Working in an office, for example, looks like a very safe job. However, there is a serious risk of back injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome and vision problems especially when you are working at a computer.

The best thing you can do to avoid such injuries is make sure you have a comfortable chair and your monitor is at eye level, which is also something that your employer should being ensuring with regular checks.
