Your employer has a responsibility to make sure the work place is safe for you and other staff, if they don’t it can lead to an accident in the work place because of their negligence.
Whether you work in a factory or office there are several hazards for both. For example, hazards in a factory can include an employee falling from a height, therefore your employer has to ensure they provide the correct equipment to prevent this from happening, such as non-slip grips on the bottom of ladders. In the office on the other hand, the employer needs to make sure they are not employing too many people to work in a confined area and ensure wires, for example, are tucked away and do not create a tripping hazard.
No matter where you work there are always hazards, and procedures have to be taken out to avoid them. When a colleague or boss doesn’t follow these procedures and you are involved in an accident because of it, we’re here to help you get the compensation you deserve.
