If you were unfortunate enough to be involved in an accident for which your employer or a fellow worker was to blame, and you sustained personal injury, you could be eligible to make workplace claims in Worthing.
Your employer’s duty to you
Employers have a duty to protect their employees from harm while they are at work. They achieve this by adhering to strict guidelines, which set out what they need to take care of.
For example, employees must be provided with the appropriate tools and machinery to perform their duties. All equipment and machinery must also be regularly serviced and kept in good working condition.
Also, any staff members required to perform tasks such as manually lifting heavy loads should be trained in proper lifting techniques, so as to avoid injury. All employees who require safety equipment such as goggles, ear plugs, gloves, hard hats, or high visibility clothing, must be provided with it.
Has your workplace accident been the result of any of the above things not being done the way they should?
