Mr M from Prestatyn North Wales was awarded compensation when a wet floor at work caused a dangerous accident; Michael Lewin experts on employment law and claims for an accident at work in the UK helped Mr M on a no win no fee basis.

Mr M was 27 year old when he suffered injuries following a dangerous accident at work. He was not aware of the wet floor in the kitchen which caused him to slip and pull a pan of hot sauce over onto himself.

Wet floors are a major cause of slips trips and falls in the UK. Employers are at risk of claims being made against them if the correct health and safety procedures are not adhered to.

1974 CHAPTER 37 Health and safety act was: ?An Act to make further provision for securing the health safety and welfare of persons at work for protecting others against risks to health or safety in connection with the activities of persons at work for controlling the keeping and use and preventing the unlawful acquisition possession and use of dangerous substances and for controlling certain emissions into the atmosphere; to make further provision with respect to the employment medical advisory service; to amend the law relating to building regulations and the Building (Scotland) Act 1959; and for connected purposes.?

There are basic rules which must be followed to reduce the risk of slips either at work or in a public place. Failure to follow these rules can lead to liability for an accident and injury to another person. Basic housekeeping rules are vital; keep water and contaminants away from walkways and if they do spill they should be cleaned up immediately. Any employees such as cleaners who are exposed to wet floors should be provided with suitable footwear. Particular care and attention should be taken during the colder months when rain ice and snow increase the risk of wet floors.
