Accidents at Work*

Your employer has a duty to ensure that your working environment is safe.

The machinery and clothing supplied to you should be fit for purpose and in a safe condition. The work area should be tidy and should not present hazards that could cause you to fall or cause some other form of damage to you.

You should receive the correct training for the type of work that you are required to undertake and your employer must ensure that there are safe systems in place.

Your employer is also responsible for the actions of your co-employees and you are entitled to work with safe and competent co-workers.

If necessary, you should receive safety clothing, for example hard hats, high visability jackets safety gloves or boots. You may need goggles, ear defenders or dust masks. In fact you should be supplied with whatever items are necessary to protect you during the course of your working day.

If you have an accident at work and you suffer an injury as a result, you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim for compensation.
