Employers need to be aware of the responsibilities that they hold when they have employees who are working on their premises. All workplaces should have health and safety executive who performs a risk assessment in the workplace. This risk assessment should take into account any potential slip trip and fall hazards which occur in the workplace and attempt to ameliorate these problems.
Slip hazards can be reduced by some very simple routines and actions being put in place by the employer. Some of these might include:
1. Tables which have lips around them stop liquid dripping onto the floor surfaces
2. Spills should be dealt with immediately and it all possible this should be of the liquid free clear up as much as possible
3. Cleaning staff should be prevented from using cleaning products which can increase slip factor on the floor surface
4. Walkways should always be kept free of obstructions and debris
If you feel that you need compensation after a work place obstruction has caused you harm come to the accidents specialists at Michael Lewin Solicitors.
Our client due to this terrible accident has picked up a back injury at a very young age. Back injuries can cause pain throughout the entire lifespan of an individual. Back injuries are notorious for taking time to heal properly if they ever fully do. As back injuries are the second most common problem cause of sick days in the United Kingdom it would make sense for all employers to take care with their staff to ensure that they are not causing a problem for their employees. Where employers do not wish to take this responsibility to Michael Lewin it seems only just that the law steps in and allows our clients to get the compensation that they so badly need.
We were very pleased to be able to help our client to get compensation after his injuries. The accident was in no way our client’s fault and if his workplace had had a few simple routines in place the spillage would and should have been cleared away prior to it causing any problems to our client.
