EMPLOYERS HAVE A DUTY OF CARE TO KEEP ALL THEIR EMPLOYEES SAFE
The Health and Safety at Work Act requires companies to maintain safe working conditions for all employees. Unfortunately, this is not always the case, and accidents occur.
The cause of a workplace accident might be malfunctioning machinery or equipment, lack of training, supervision or protective safety equipment. Hamilton Douglas Legal can help you get compensation if your employer was irresponsible and you were injured at work. Employers must offer a safe working environment or be accountable for any employee injuries.
Online Enquiry Form
Hamilton Douglas Legal have specialist factory accidents and injury lawyers experienced in dealing with accidents of this type.
Your employer has a duty of care to provide a safe working environment, ensuring they comply with health and safety legislation. The Health and Safety at Work Regulations Act 1974 ensures that all employees are working in a safe environment.
Sadly, accidents occur when workplace health and safety regulations are not followed. In that situation, your employer is liable for the accident, and you can sue for any injuries and related expenses. Some examples are private medical treatment, lost wages, and prescription costs.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM MY EMPLOYER
Your company must take some precautions to prevent workplace accidents. These are:
Regularly inspecting machinery for defects and proper operation.
Providing you with the necessary training to do your work safely, including particular instruction to operate specialised machines.
A helmet, steel-toed boots, high visibility vests, gloves and safety goggles are examples of PPE.
Hand, eye, and ear protection should always be available.
Keeping the floor clean of tripping hazards including cardboard boxes, wires and cables, and spilled fluids.
