Your employer has a duty to remove or minimise risks and hazards which could potentially cause injury in the workplace.
Various legislation and regulations impose specific duties upon employers to ensure that health and safety in the workplace is upheld and maintained correctly.
If you are injured whilst in the workplace because of the actions of your employer or a fellow employee, for example as a result of:
- slipping and tripping hazards
- inadequate training or warning systems / notices
- fire hazards
- poor or insufficient lighting
- defective or inadequate work equipment
- unguarded machinery
- lack of personal protective equipment
- working environments which are too hot or too cold
- excessive noise levels
- being required to carry out an unsafe manual handling task
then you may be able to pursue a claim against your employer.
