Your employer has a duty to protect you and tell you about health and safety issues that affect you. They also have a legal obligation to report certain accidents and incidents and to pay you sick pay if you are entitled to it. Your employer has to carry out a risk assessment and do what’s needed to take care of the health and safety of employees and visitors. This includes deciding how many first-aiders are needed and what kind of first-aid equipment and facilities should be provided.
Mr O who is 49 lost his thumb when it was severed on the lid of his tool box whilst at work causing Mr O considerable distress even causing sleepless nights and flashbacks to the incident.
