Mr B was 19 years of age when he had his accident. He was working on a site at a hospital. He was on the way to the lavatories when he slipped on a wet floor.
There were no signs or any kind of warning and therefore Mr B suffered injuries as a result of his employer’s negligence: his accident was caused through no fault of his own. As a result of his accident he suffered injuries to his back.
Employers have a duty of care which includes creating a health and safety work leaflet which should be adhered to. This workbook should include details of how to prevent accidents at work. As a general rule all walkways should be kept clean and any spills on the floor should be dealt with immediately. Very simple rules such as this should be in place in every workplace up and down the country. Employees need to be aware that employers have these legal obligations to ensure that their workplaces are safe and healthy as much as possible. Small changes in the way in which employees are advised to go about their day-to-day work make a huge difference to the amounts severity of any accidents which may occur.
