Mr T was awarded a very pleasing £6000 in compensation following his accident at work. Mr T was reversed into by a fork lift truck that was being driven by another colleague. Mr T suffered very painful injuries as a result of his accident and took a long time to recover.

Thankfully Michael Lewin Solicitors were able to pursue a case on behalf of Mr T as the accident was not his fault. 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 at work 1974 is by no means an exhaustive act other additional acts have also been introduced as supplements to enhance it such as the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER 98). These additions are very much more niche to certain sectors of employment law which employers of office workers will rarely if ever need to deal with. Employers who have manual workers or who have workers who need to use machinery which is inherently dangerous can usually find more exhaustive requirements by asking a law firm or by doing a check for their legal obligations online. Another set of workers who require separate working requirements includes agricultural workers and workers who are around things such as coal dust and loud noises.
