It is the responsibility of all employers to protect their employees from risk of accident and injury. This includes making sure that: –
- All employees have necessary tools and machines to complete their jobs and those machines are in proper working condition.
- The employees are provided with a safe and organised work environment. Employees should be clearly warned of all possible risks and hazards in their work space.
- If employees are required to do heavy lifting they are given prior relevant training.
- All employees are provided with the necessary equipment before going about their jobs, including goggles, fire retardant clothes, gloves, helmets, etc.
If your employer has not ensured the above you have a strong claim for your accident.
