Human causes of accidents at work and claims for workplace compensation in Tonyrefail
We all know that there are many reasons as to why accidents occur within the workplace including problems with machinery, poorly maintained equipment, poorly mopped or cleaned floors etc. but one factor stands head and shoulders above the rest when it comes to the cause of many accidents. And that factor is the human factor.
Human interaction can lead to accidents unfolding where before they might not have occurred and in such circumstances it can be the case that workplace compensation in Tonyrefail is payable if the accident was not your fault. If you have suffered an accident that was caused by a work colleague then you may be eligible to receive compensation for your injuries and your circumstances after the accident has occurred.
Most accidents have human influences
Most accidents in the workplace have a human influence and it can often be the case that an accident might have been avoided if a person had acted in a different manner. Whilst it is not always the case that a human is responsible, it is fair to say that many cases of accident at work compensation in Tonyrefail have been paid because of the problems caused by a person prior to the accident unfolding. Such influences often can lead to the injuries you have sustained being worse than they might have been and can lead – after the event – to injuries being made worse if say the wrong type of first aid care is administered.
Poorly administered first aid as a factor
While many accidents themselves can cause an injury, so too can the administering of poor first aid. Accident Advice Helpline have been instrumental in helping many people successfully claim workplace compensation in Tonyrefail because of first aid treatment that was below par or not consistent with the injuries sustained as a result of the accident. To this end it is vitally important that your employer insures that those administering first aid are properly qualified and are kept up to date with all relevant changes in first aid care including refresher courses. Failing to ensure first aiders are kept abreast of changes in first aid treatment and also up to date on their refresher courses can constitute a failure in your employer’s duty of care.
If you have suffered an accident that wasn’t your fault within the last three years you may well be entitled to make a claim for accident at work compensation in Tonyrefail; likewise if you suffered an accident and received poor first aid care through poor training.
