Under the Health and Safety at Work Act, employers have a duty of care to their employees, this means that they have to provide all their workers with safe working conditions, unfortunately this isn’t always the case and as a result accidents sometimes occur.
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.
Unfortunately on some occasions health and safety in the office is not followed, resulting in accidents taking place, in that case your employer will be held responsible for the accident, and you can make a claim for any injury that you may have suffered along with any expenses associated as a result of the accident, to name a few these could include private medical treatment, loss of earnings, and prescription costs.
