    Workplace injury in West Lothian


    How to solve disputes between colleagues and make a claim if necessary

    Any dispute between colleagues needs to be sorted out sooner rather than later so that it does not affect their output, or the running of the company. It could also cause a workplace injury in West Lothian. Whether you are an employer or another colleague hoping to step in and help mediate the issue, it is best to help your colleagues to resolve their issues sooner rather than later.

    How to avoid a workplace injury in West Lothian

    If you are concerned that the dispute might lead into dangerous territory, fights or injuries, then you should go to the management team in order to get it resolved, rather than trying to help out yourself.

    • Arrange a meeting. Speak to the colleagues directly and arrange a meeting between them, where they can both air their grievances, and a plan of action can be worked out. It is always easier to solve a problem if the people involved are able to speak directly.
    • Act as mediator. If the situation is very upsetting for one or both people involved, then there may be a lot of anger or upset. The best way to avoid this and to keep the conversation professional is to act as an unbiased mediator who can ask questions and offer a point of view which is outside of the situation.
    • Take action. As an employer, you should be able to take action against any employee that is behaving badly, or who is going against the rules set out in their contract. Don’t be afraid to sanction one or both parties if you feel it is necessary.
    • Move the employees apart. This may be trickier if they work in the same department, but if necessary moving the employees so that they spend less time together can help to ease the situation and help them to concentrate on the job at hand.
