Mrs H used our accident compensation services in Leeds. She was injured when manual lifting in her work place.
There are strict rules and regulations in place for when employees are lifting as part of their work as instructed by their employer. Mrs H from Prestatyn was 51 years of age at the time of the accident. She was lifting a heavy item at work when she was injured.
Lack of training could have been the cause of Mrs H’s accident. Sadly many workplaces do not provide the correct amount of training for their employees. There are rules which state in the 1974 health and safety act that adequate information training and instruction is required of all workers. This training is not a set amount; it will be dependent on the age and competency of the employee. Supervision and training will be much greater for new processes and for young and inexperienced employees. Training must also be well thought out because training to use a computer may allow mistakes to happen however mistakes cannot be allowed to happen when younger or inexperienced workers are in charge of large electrical equipment.
