Accidents in the Workplace

Some workplaces are inherently more dangerous than others, but no workplace should be unnecessarily dangerous and employers accordingly have a duty to protect their employees from injury. They have to supply any necessary safety wear, provide the right tools for the job and keep them in good condition, train relevant employees in safe lifting techniques, provide suitable workstations, and keep corridors and doors free from hazards.

Some common accidents at work include back injuries from heavy lifting, injuries caused by defective tools or machinery, crushing injuries and breaks and sprains from slipping and tripping accidents. Employees working at height are subject to special regulation.

If your employer does not fulfil their duty and you suffer personal injury at work as a result, you may be able to make a claim for compensation. Furthermore, if you are injured in an accident that was caused by a colleague’s negligence, you may still have a claim against your employer for compensation for the personal injury suffered in the accident at work.
