Making workplace claims in Watford
We deal with all types of injury claims caused by all different types of accidents. A common accident is accidents in the workplace. Often people get hurt or injured through no fault of their own and sometimes the employer is at fault for having inadequate health and safety in place.
Sometimes accidents happen at work and the injuries end up being more severe because the employer has neglected health and safety procedure and failed to provide a suitable First Aid kit. In these circumstances the employer is at fault and the injured employee has a right to make workplace claims in Watford.
Does your place of work have a suitable First Aid kit? They are required, under the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 and the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981, to meet certain standards when it comes to keeping a First Aid kit for employees.
An employer should provide, or ensure that there are provided, such equipment and facilities as are appropriate in the circumstances for enabling first aid to be rendered to his employees if they are injured or become ill at work. In deciding what equipment and facilities and what numbers and what types of personnel are needed the employer should have regard to the following criteria:
- Number of employees;
- The nature of the undertaking;
- The size of the establishment and the distribution of employees; and
- The location of the establishment and the locations to which employees go in the course of their work.
If these requirements have not been met and as a result an injured employer suffered more than necessary or their injuries became worse the employee could well be eligible to make a claim.
