    Worthing Accident at Work


    Workplace injuries and illnesses tend to arise from unsafe or unhealthy working conditions. To protect yourself from accidents at work, it is necessary for you to identify any risks to your health and take steps to avoid them. While accidents in Worthing are not always predictable and preventable, it is possible for you to reduce your risk of harm while you are at work.

    How to avoid a Worthing accident at work

    • Be informed
      Health and safety training should increase your awareness of the hazards present in your workplace and provide you with the instructions you need to perform your tasks safely and effectively. Your employer has a duty to ensure that you receive sufficient training on the safest way to perform your job. If you do not feel confident about performing a task or using a piece of equipment, do not be afraid to ask your employer for more training.
    • Make sure you have proper equipment
      If you perform hazardous tasks, remember to wear the correct personal protective equipment (PPE). Your employer should provide you with appropriate PPE and training in its usage.
    • Report hazards
      If you discover a potential hazard, inform your employer. Follow up with your employer to ensure they have taken appropriate action to resolve the hazard.
    • Do not overexert yourself
      Excessive heavy lifting, pushing, pulling or carrying can cause serious injuries. If you must perform manual lifting work, use safe lifting techniques to reduce your chances of suffering from strains and sprains, and take regular breaks to give your muscles time to rest.
    • Avoid repetitive motion
      Repetitive motions can strain your soft tissues, causing significant injuries. If your job requires you to perform for repeated motions for long periods, ensure your employer provides you with regular rest breaks.
