Every employer should have a person who deals with the health and safety matters. This person should be able to understand the issues around health and safety to be able to offer guidance to all the other employees in the workplace. The primary job of this person is to carry out a risk assessment which needs to identify the health and safety risks of every employee in the workplace. If the workplace has five or more employees the competent person aforementioned has to keep a record of the assessments results.

If you have suffered from a leg fracture at work which was not your fault call Michael Lewin’s specialist solicitors to start your claim today.

The risk assessment should take into effect any risks which are greater than normal; by this we could include any potentially more dangerous work such as manual handling. If manual handling cannot be avoided then a reduction in the risk of injury to manual workers must be contemplated. Any reduction of risk could include items such as police and trolleys to help manual workers to be able to deal with larger heavier items. Also if specialist equipment is required to provide protection to the employees this must be checked at regular intervals the signs of wear and tear. Any equipment which has not been regularly checked may be more likely to cause an accident to an employee. This accident could prove costly for the employer so it would be in their best interests in any of these cases to provide the correct equipment and risk assessment in the first place.

Mr W asked Michael Lewin to take his claim as he felt that the metal should not have been protruding in the manner that it was.
