Mr T from Halifax went to Michael Lewin to make a claim after his injury; if you have suffered from a brain injury at work call our qualified team at Michael Lewin.
Mr T was going about his normal workplace duties when a machine at work hit our client on the head.
Our client had not received any training to perform his role in work. He approached Michael Lewin for help after he felt that his accident could easily have been avoided if he and his colleagues had been given adequate training on the use of the machinery in the workplace.
One of the work accident solicitors at Michael Lewin feels particularly strongly about the issue of adequate training ?Why employers subject staff to extra risks in this day and age due to inadequate training is beyond me; there is no need for these accidents to continue to happen. It makes my blood boil.?
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.
If you would like to make a claim for brain injury compensation to help you and your family financially call Michael Lewin’s expert solicitors to start your claim today.
Every UK employer has a duty of care. This is critical to the health safety and general welfare of all employees. Not all employers are aware of the implications of the duty of care. But it doesn?t matter how small a business happens to be. Where there’s any member of staff there is a duty of care responsibility.
An employer should have a person who deals with health and safety matters. This person must be legally competent. In other words that person should have the ability to understand the concerns around health and safety. Mr T asked Michael Lewin to take his head injury claim as he felt that his employers had neglected to train him properly.
