All employers owe a duty of care to their employees to ensure their safety when at work and that the working practices employed are safe for everyone involved.

In order to ensure compliance with various health and safety regulations, an employer should ensure that all employees are adequately trained and supervised and follow required systems to ensure their continued safety. Employers are also required to undertake risk assessments for all working practices and to take steps to reduce the risk of any work to the lowest reasonable level. An employer should have a record of risk assessments relating to the operation of work equipment, working environments and general employee well-being risk assessments. It is not, however, sufficient for an employer to simply provide risk assessments on paper – they must also train employees in the safe working procedures and ensure that the procedures are enforced.

If you have been injured in an accident whilst you were at work or as a result of someone else's negligence then our team could help you claim compensation.

Whatever your circumstances, please do not hesitate to contact us for further information and advice.
