Who's to blame for my industrial accident?
Every employer has a duty of care to keep you safe in the workplace. To help them do this, employers are meant to follow regulations, covering areas including:
- Managing health and safety
- Manual handling
- Display screens
- The workplace you are in
- The equipment you use
- Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
The most important part of these regulations is the duty it places on your employer to carry out a full health and safety assessment to help stop accidents happening. Where this hasn't been done properly – and you have been hurt as a result – you have the right to claim compensation from your employer's liability insurance policy.
