Michael Lewin Solicitors helped Mr B from Sheffield claim compensation after an accident at work. His employers were found to be liable for his accident and Mr B was awarded £1750.00 in compensation as a result.
Mr B had been at work when he was hit in the face with chrome oxide. Chrome oxide is classed as harmful to the skin and manufacturers warn that when handled it should be kept away from skin and eyes.
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.?
Employers must ensure that they comply with legal requirements including:
? Avoid potentially dangerous work involving manual handling; if these risks cannot be avoided they must be reduced.
? Provide health supervision as required.
? Provide protective clothing and/or equipment.
? Ensure that the correct warning signs are provided.

Employees can be seriously injured by way of faulty equipment which they have been given or by using defective equipment which then causes an accident. These accidents then have penalties from the employer needing to replace or re-train the member of staff who was injured to possibly paying out for rehabilitation and compensation for financial losses which the employee has suffered due to the accident.
Employers may also have to undergo an investigation and face the closure of their firm if serious negligence has resulted in a near-fatal accident on their premises. These are extreme consequences which employers rarely consider but checking equipment can prevent a great deal of heartache further down the line.
