Mr S slipped in a large superstore at the age of 45. Some cardboard packaging had fallen from some shelving and had not been tidied away. His hazard caused Mr S to trip over and sustain injuries to his back and side.
Any back injury can take a long period of time to recover form. Extra costs can be incurred as a result of a back injury; if you have been unable to work due to your injuries you may have lost out on wages if you have had to pay for prescriptions for medication to help you recover form an accident you may be able to claim it back.
The Health and safety at work 1974 is by no means an exhaustive act other additional acts have also been introduced as supplements to enhance it such as the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER 98). These additions are very much more niche to certain sectors of employment law which employers of office workers will rarely if ever need to deal with. Employers who have manual workers or who have workers who need to use machinery which is inherently dangerous can usually find more exhaustive requirements by asking a law firm or by doing a check for their legal obligations online. Another set of workers who require separate working requirements includes agricultural workers and workers who are around things such as coal dust and loud noises.

A duty of care is a much used legal term which comes into play when a company or organisation does something which could be reasonably expected to cause a person harm either intentionally or through neglect. This harm could be either a physical injury the most common type we see here or it could be a mental injury or the financial consequences of an accident could be harmful to the individual and his or her family. In a workplace an employer must provide a minimum of reasonable care towards all its employees. If this duty of care is neglected and an accident subsequently occurs employees are further covered by being able to take their employer to court to get financial compensation for any harm caused by the employer’s negligence or non-adherence to their duty of care.
