Mr M from beautiful Prestatyn in Denbighshire was 27 when his work accident occurred; he approached Michael Lewin to make a compensation claim on his behalf.
MrM was based in Prestatyn in Denbighshire when he slipped on a wet floor in his workplace pulling a pan of hot oil over himself as he fell. Unfortunately our client had tried to steady himself as he fell but he had actually ended up pulling a pan of hot oil over himself.
Slips can be prevented by following some common sense guidelines
? Tables should have lips around them to prevent liquids from dripping from work surfaces this is a common slip hazard
? Walkways should always be kept clear of obstructions
? Spills should be immediately dealt with and where possible this should be attempted as a liquid free clean up
? Floors should be designed to be non- slippery if it is expected that they may have liquids dropped on them frequently
? Cleaning staff should be prevented from using cleaning products which can increase the slip factor of the floor surface as an example furniture polish on a smooth tile could prove to be a very bad idea
? Footwear which is chosen for the role is always a good idea if accident are to be avoided
These guidelines are just things which should have been considered in your workplace’s health and safety manual. The health and safety guidance documents in work should take into account the environment in which you work; it should have considered the potential risks which exist in your workplace.
