Mr M was seriously injured in an accident at work at the age of 54. Mr M was using the tail lift on a truck at work. The tail lift mechanism was defective and it fell down with force onto his arm. As a result of being provided with defective equipment at work Mr M suffered a fractured elbow and a sprained arm. Mr M had to have a period off work to recover from his accident and also suffered loss of earnings.
Part of the health and safety at work act 1074 states: (2)It shall be the duty of each person who has to any extent control of premises to which this section applies or of the means of access thereto or egress therefrom or of any plant or substance in such premises to take such measures as it is reasonable for a person in his position to take to ensure so far as is reasonably practicable that the premises all means of access thereto or egress therefrom available for use by persons using the premises and any plant or substance in the premises or as the case may be provided for use there is or are safe and without risks to health.
It shall be the duty of every employer to conduct his undertaking in such a way as to ensure so far as is reasonably practicable that persons not in his employment who may be affected thereby are not thereby exposed to risks to their health or safety. Michael Lewin’s expert accident at work compensation claim lawyers in London pursued Mr M’s case on his behalf. The case was successful and Mr M was awarded compensation.
Employees can be seriously injured by way of faulty equipment which they have been given or by using defective equipment which then causes an accident. These accidents then have penalties from the employer needing to replace or re-train the member of staff who was injured to possibly paying out for rehabilitation and compensation for financial losses which the employee has suffered due to the accident.
Employers may also have to undergo an investigation and face the closure of their firm if serious negligence has resulted in a near-fatal accident on their premises. These are extreme consequences which employers rarely consider but checking equipment can prevent a great deal of heartache further down the line.
