After a severe accident at work Michael Lewin Solicitors helped Mr M make a facial injury at work claim for compensation in London.
Mr M 38 from Swindon was at work when his colleague threw a reel of metal cable into the air. The reel of metal cable hit Mr M in the face and caused serious damage. Some of Mr M’s teeth were damaged and others were knocked out. Mr M also suffered lacerations to his lips.
This accident was not Mr M’s fault yet he suffered facial injuries. Thankfully Michael Lewin Solicitors were able to help Mr M claim compensation for his ordeal.
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.

A duty of care is a much used legal term which comes into play when a company or organisation does something which could be reasonably expected to cause another person harm either intentionally or through neglect. This harm could be either a physical injury the most common type we see here or it could be a mental injury or the financial consequences of an accident could be harmful to the individual and his or her family. In a workplace an employer must provide a minimum of reasonable care towards all its employees. If this duty of care is neglected and an accident subsequently occurs employees are further covered by being able to take their employer to court to get financial compensation for any harm caused by the employer’s negligence or non-adherence to their duty of care.
