Although steps are taken to prevent and avoid accidents in the workplace, they are sadly still a common occurrence. The most recent Health and Safety Executive (HSE) report on workplace accidents estimated that over 600,000 workers are injured in the workplace each year, and over 1.2 million workers suffer from a work-related illness.

Unsurprisingly, accidents are much more common in certain kinds of workplaces. The HSE has found that workplaces such as construction sites, oil rigs, manufacturing, agriculture and fishing have some of the highest rates of workplace accidents. This is due to the often dangerous nature of these industries. There will often be heavy machinery, large vehicles and hazardous substances used which can cause catastrophic injuries.

However, workplace accidents and injuries are not unique to industrial work sites. An office environment may seem safe, but there is still potential for accidents. If office debris such as paper, packaging or rubbish is not cleared away, an employee could fall over it and be injured. Untidy wires or unsafe flooring can also pose a trip hazard.

Many workers receive debilitating and painful injuries due to the often repetitive nature of office work. Typing can cause conditions such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Trigger Finger and Tennis Elbow.

What Responsibilities Does an Employer Have?

In general, every employer has a duty to take reasonable steps to ensure that their employees have a safe working environment. Employers must provide safe equipment that it in good working order. They must also train employees to use the equipment correctly and safely. Hazards should be assessed, and action should be taken if there is a danger to an employee.

In addition to this, there may be an industry specific standard which the employer is expected to meet. This means that there may be certain breathing apparatus or protective clothing that an employer has a duty to provide for his employees.

How Much Can You Claim?

no win no fee glasgowThere are many factors which influence the value of compensation you can claim for a workplace industry. The severity of the injury and the length of time taken to recover are central factors. The compensation level would also be affected by the impact the injury has on the employee’s ability to work and whether surgery was needed.

If an employee’s injury was their fault, they would not be able to claim compensation. For example, they may have been provided with a step ladder and trained on how to use it effectively, but instead, they chose to climb on a table to reach something at height.

To make a claim against your employer, you must be able to demonstrate that they had a duty of care that they failed to meet.
