Workplace Injuries

The Health & Safety Executive is the body responsible for workplace safety.

In statistics from 2014/2015 76,000 injuries were reported under RIDDOR and of those injuries the most common kinds of accident were:

  • Slips & Trips (28%)
  • Handling, Lifting or Carrying (23%)
  • Struck by Moving Objects (10%)

And 4.1 million working days were lost due to workplace injury.

All employers have a responsibility to employees and guests to make sure the working premises are safe. They should provide as minimum:

  • Up to date Risk Assessments
  • Adequate Training
  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
  • Equipment in good working order

These guidelines are in place to protect people from having accidents however they do still occur. If you are injured at work and it was not your fault the employer will have insurance that can be claimed from for compensation.

The accident/injury could be caused by:

  • Negligence of Fellow Employee
  • Falling Objects
  • Faulty Machinery/Equipment
  • No or Lack of Training

Workplace accidents can vary from case to case as the circumstances are usually specific to the employees job and the task at hand on the day of the accident. Each claim will be looked at individually and assessed by our injury claims team here and we can establish if you do have a valid claim for compensation.
