Mrs H suffered from a needless accident she was awarded over £2700.00; for any accidents at work which you could make a claim Michael Lewin can help.
Mrs H from the lovely seaside town of Bournemouth was 32 when she sustained a bad back whilst working. Our client had asked various staff members to help her carry a box with training materials. Since they refused she lifted the box herself and hurt her back.
Back injuries can be very serious; occasionally surgery can be required to mend a prolapsed disk caused by strenuous lifting without having received training about the correct procedures which should be used to lift heavy objects.
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.
