Advice from Accident Advice Helpline for employers on how to minimise workplace accidents
If you are the owner or manager of a business that employs a team of workers, then you have a responsibility to keep them safe whilst at work. Accident Advice Helpline suggest that you pay close attention to the Health and Safety Executive guidelines designed to minimise hazards in your particular sector of work.
When a workplace injury claim is made, it is usually because health and safety procedures have not been adequately carried out. By paying particular attention to workplace safety, you will be helping to prevent personal injury claims from being made against your company. Obviously it is still important to maintain your liability insurance policy, which will cover your company in the instance of a claim being made by one of your employees.
Amongst other health and safety requirements, you must ensure that:
- Workers are sufficiently trained to do the job that you are expecting them to do;
- There is a good standard of communication between employees and yourself regarding safety issues;
- The workplace is assessed for hazards and these are dealt with;
- Employees are provided with safety protection equipment and clothing where necessary;
- Exposure of workers to dangerous substances is monitored and limited; and
- The workplace environment is kept in an orderly, organised manner.
By following the advice given above, employers cam minimise the chances of being sued by employees for injuries sustained in the workplace.
