    Workplace injury in Clutton-on-the-Mendips

    Any employer in the UK should be fully conversant with health and safety employment law at work, because if they are not and you have an accident then it could be deemed their fault. This could end up being very costly for them if you make a workplace injury in Clutton-on-the-Mendips compensation claim with Accident Advice Helpline.

    Health and safety issues

    Employers have a legal duty to protect their employees while in the workplace, and to let them know about all health and safety issues that affect them. They should take steps to ensure that the workplace is a safe environment for the workers, otherwise they could face prosecution and leave themselves open to their employees sustaining a workplace injury in Clutton-on-the-Mendips.

    Serious accidents must be reported

    The employer must report serious accidents at work to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). There are several types of incident that fall within this category, such as:

    • Death;
    • Major injuries, including broken limbs or ribs;
    • Disease;
    • Collapse of scaffolding or walls;
    • People overcome by gas or fumes; and
    • An injury that would need you to have more than seven days off work.

    If you think that your employer might not have reported an accident to the HSE, then you should do so yourself. They like to investigate each reported incident and compile an accident report, which often apportions blame. A copy of this report could be vital when making your personal injury claim for compensation.

    The accident book

    All accidents, no matter how minor, should be recorded in an accident book. Not only will a record help you if in the future you want to use an injury lawyer to make a claim for compensation, but it also helps the employer to see if similar accidents keep happening, so that they can takes steps to make sure that they are avoided for future.
