Accidents at work happen all the time sometimes they are just simple accidents as a result of an error made solely by the person having the accident. Some accidents at work happen because of the negligence of the person or persons responsible for the safety of the employees in the workplace.
The health and Safety at Work Act was passed by Parliament in 10974. The Act was bought in to cover an employer’s health and safety responsibilities at work. In the Act it states that it is an employer’s responsibility to tell employees about any potential hazards in the workplace including if they involve working with chemicals and hazardous substances. Employers are also responsible for the information instructions training and supervision of employees who are coming into contact with any hazards in the workplace.

Facial injuries do not just cause physical injuries quite often a victim of a facial injury can be left with psychological damage too if they cannot accept the way their looks have changed. Facial injuries can change lives irreparably if the damage to the face is severe.
