You could be entitled to industrial injury compensation if an incident in the workplace that could have been avoided with better health and safety measures has left you injured and suffering.
If your employer failed to carry out an extensive health and safety assessment of your working environment and you had an accident because the risks in the workplace were not identified and eliminated you could be entitled to claim industrial injury compensation if the accident has left you injured. Without a health and safety assessment there is no clear identification of the risks in your place of work; if the risks are not outlined then an employer cannot take measures to eliminate the risks- this means an accident is much more likely to occur. Your employer has a legal obligation to provide you with a safe workplace and the equipment necessary to make your job safer.
Not only do you have the right to a safe working environment and the appropriate safety equipment you also have the right to receive training that is of an appropriate standard to enable you to do your job safely and without risking an accident. if you have not received the required training and you have had an accident as a result you are also entitled to make a personal injury claim for your injuries.
