Mrs C did just that after she suffered a fall at work. She was not aware or given any warning that the floor in the ladies toilets at work was wet. She slipped and fell awkwardly injuring her neck. The injuries were painful and it took some time for her to recover.
Harm is caused by either the action or sometimes the inaction of the employer. Some actions which could be considered harmful to employers could include an employer removing a safety guard thus increasing the likelihood for an accident to occur. An inaction causing harm could be something as simple as an employer not replacing a mat by the entrance to the building and this causing a slip or trip. Another inaction which frequently occurs is employers not insisting that warning signs are in place when liquids are spilt on the floor.
If you have been involved in a slip trip or fall if you have questions regarding the legal rights of victims of work accidents or if you want to make a compensation claim for your injuries after an accident in the UK Michael Lewin are there to help you.
There are basic rules which must be followed to reduce the risk of slips like the one suffered by Mrs C. Basic housekeeping rules are vital; keep water and contaminants away from walkways and if they do spill they should be cleaned up immediately. Any employees such as cleaners who are exposed to wet floors should be provided with suitable footwear.
Particular care and attention should be taken during the colder months when rain ice and snow increase the risk of wet floors.
