A young man from Spennymore sought legal assistant from Michael Lewin Solicitors after he was injured in a workplace accident because he hadn?t been correctly trained to do his job safely; he took advantage of the compensation claims advice from the legal team in Leeds who were delighted to accept his case and start processing his claim immediately.

21 year old Mr R was asked to cut a pipe at work but had not been given the correct instructions. By neglecting to provide adequate training for their young employee Mr R’s employer was liable for the injuries Mr R sustained.

Adequate information training and instructions for all employees are a major part of an employer’s legal obligations. This may be dependent on the age and competency of the employees; for new processes or young/inexperienced employees the supervision instruction and on-going training will need to be on a far more frequent basis than for established working procedures. In particular mistakes cannot be allowed to happen when younger workers are in charge of welding equipment or large electrically powered blades.

All employers? duty of care to their employees means that they have to provide competent staff a safe working environment the correct equipment and a safe system of work. An employer can only escape liability if they can prove that they have exercised reasonable care
