There is a lot to consider when you go into work every day. From checking through your tasks for the day and making sure that you’re meeting tight deadlines, to ensuring that everyone on your team is on track and up to date with everything, you have so much to think about.
However, it is also paramount that you think about your own health and safety every day. From making sure that your area of work is clean, tidy and clear, to ensuring that you are following any health and safety procedures your employer has put in place, there are often things that you can do to make sure that you are safe at work.
However, it may be the case that your employer is negligible for an injury you have suffered from at work. It is your employer’s responsibility to ensure that you are healthy and safe at work, as much as they possibly can. And if you have done everything you can to be safe and sensible yourself, it may be the case that you are entitled to compensation.
Has your employer failed to provide you with adequate health and safety provisions? Has your employer stopped carrying out risk assessments? Has your employer asked you to operate faulty or dangerous equipment? If this is the case and you have suffered from an injury, you could be owed a lot of money. Read through our infographic below to find out if your employer has been negligent when it comes to your health and safety at work.
