Although some types of jobs are inherently more dangerous than others, most employers do take steps to ensure the safety of their employees. Whilst some jobs, such as construction roles, obviously require very specific safety equipment, even office workers may require some generic safety equipment.
Have your employers provided the appropriate safety equipment?
For example, office workers may use special screens over their computer screens to help to protect their eyesight. In addition to protecting a worker’s eyesight, these screens can also help to prevent headaches and migraines which could lead to employees taking less time off work as well.
If your job involves making deliveries, your employer may ensure that you have access to a range of equipment so that you can transport goods appropriately. Continually carrying heavy goods could harm your back in the long term so it’s important to make use of the equipment that’s available.
Have you suffered workplace injuries in Walkden?
If you think that you should have access to certain pieces of safety equipment, it’s important to raise this issue with your employer. In many instances, employers will welcome feedback from their staff and make every effort to ensure that they are kept safe whilst they are performing their duties.
However, if your employer fails to respond to your request, you may need to speak with someone in your human resources or occupational health department regarding the issue. Often, they will be able to make specific adaptations for you if you are suffering from an illness or injury which could make it easier for you to perform your tasks.Open Claim Calculator
