Michael Lewin Solicitors helped Mr W aged 27 claim compensation when he gashed his knuckle in an accident at work; the accomplished team of solicitors have helped thousands of people with work related claims and offer the highest possible level of legal advice in the UK.

Mr W was sorting out scrap plastic at work when a glass frame smashed and lacerated his knuckle. The accident left Mr W with bleeding and swelling from the painful cuts. He was also faced with the risk of infection and scarring which are common complications that may arise from a laceration. A knuckle is a particularly difficult area to repair as it is in on the joint.

Adequate information training and instruction is required for all workers but this is not a set amount. This will be dependent on the age and competency of the employees; for new processes or young/inexperienced employees the supervision will need to be on a far more frequent basis than for established working procedures. Also training to use a computer can allow mistakes which will not be costly in terms of employee’s physical well-being but mistakes cannot be allowed to happen when younger workers are in charge of welding equipment or large electrically powered blades.

Section 3 requires the employer to ensure that people not employed but who could be affected by his operation are not placed at risk. The general public customers visitors or contractors attending the site might need training or supervision to minimise the risk to their health and safety while on site or relevant personal protective equipment (PPE) along with training on how to use it correctly may need to be provided.

The Health and Safety Act of 1974 is the primary piece of legislation that covers work related health and safety issues in the UK.
