Accident at Work

Have you had an accident or injury at work?

By law, your employers have to protect your health, safety and welfare at work. They have to make sure the workplace is safe and without risk to health. As part of this duty, employers must

 

  • Make sure that plant and machinery are safe and regularly maintained, and that the systems used in the workplace are safe
  • Provide protective clothing where necessary
  • Keep dust, fumes and noise under control
  • Report certain diseases and injuries to the relevant authority
  • Provide adequate first aid equipment and facilities
  • Take precautions against fire and provide adequate means of escape and means of fighting fire
  • Assess the risks that might be involved in work practices such as using equipment, even computers. Work practices must be changed to prevent injuries where necessary.

 

If you have suffered an injury at work due to your employers’ failure to carry out their duties then you will be able to claim compensation for this.
