If defective equipment has caused an accident in the workplace and resulted in any injuries to employees all possible causes will be investigated. Service records will be checked reports of defects or problems will be examined and the frequency of inspections will be taken into account. Employers must not only create a safe working environment but they must enforce it and ensure that it is adhered to. They are responsible for any employee who has either not been trained or is failing to follow correct safety procedures.
Industrial accidents happen on an all too regular basis mainly due to employer neglect; Michael Lewin Solicitors can help you claim compensation in London if you have been injured through no fault of your own.
Your employer has got to provide you with a safe and secure working environment. Under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 your employer has a responsibility to keep you safe in the workplace. The Health and Safety Act of 1974 is the primary piece of legislation that covers work related health and safety issues in the UK. It states your employer’s responsibilities for your health and safety at work. A health and safety executive should be appointment within the business to oversee and manage all health and safety matters. Any safety issues should be reported immediately to the health and safety executive.
Failure to provide the appropriate equipment is just as dangerous as providing faulty equipment. If you feel the equipment you have been provided with is not adequate you should report it immediately. If you have been injured as a result of inadequate equipment you should be entitled to compensation.
