An accident at work could mean you need to take time off from work to recover. If someone else was at fault you may be able to make an workplace injury claim in Thurrock. If you call Accident Advice Helpline we can tell you if you can make a claim.
Accidents at work can be a simple trip or slip, or an accident involving machinery which could leave life threatening injuries. Most accidents at work are trips and slips, and injuries heal relatively quickly. If you’ve been injured at work, there are a few things you should do.
What to do if you are injured at work
- Report it. No matter how minor you think your accident is make sure you report it to the Health and Safety officer or put it in the accident report book.
- Have your injury treated. Visiting a medical practitioner will make sure you have the right advice and treatment.
- Don’t feel you have to return to work before you are fully fit. If you return to work too early, you might have to take more time off.
