Preventing accident at work claims

If you require a personal injury lawyer to represent you in an accident at work claim against your employer, George Ide’s solicitors in Chichester can be on your side to help you achieve maximum compensation and to ensure that you receive the very best care possible to help you recover from your injuries.

Preventing Accidents At Work By Providing A Safe Workplace

Employers have a responsibility to ensure their workers have a safe workplace in which to carry out their job.

Plus, they must also make sure that visitors’ safety is considered when they come to the premises.

Employers, owners, managers and facilities co-ordinators must all follow the guidelines contained within the Health and Safety at Work etc, Act, the primary piece of health and safety legislation, to help prevent accidents at work and to keep anyone who uses their premises safe from harm.

Workers and employers in certain sectors must adhere to other, industry specific pieces of legislation such as the Work at Height Regulations and the CoSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) Regulations, but every workplace in the UK must abide by certain terms contained with the Health and Safety at Work Act.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is the body responsible for the enforcement of health and safety regulations in the workplace and, if an accident occurs, they will be responsible for carrying out any necessary investigation into an incident. The HSE can prosecute employers who have failed in their duty of care or have, through their negligence, caused a worker, or visitor, to suffer harm.

If an employer is found guilty by a court of breaching health and safety regulations in relation to the provision of a safe working environment, which consequently caused a worker or member of the public to suffer personal injury, then it is likely that an accident at work claim for compensation will be successful.
