A workplace accident can involve a multitude of injuries and it is vital that you get compensation claims advice and discuss the circumstances of your accident with a legal professional; Mr C called Michael Lewin Solicitors in the UK when his eye was injured by broken glass and the personal injury team were on to his case immediately.
Mr C’s safety glasses broke which caused very painful injuries to his eye. Eyes are at risk in many working environments which means it is crucial that all employers make sure that any requirements for eye protection are indentified by a comprehensive risk assessment. For employees who wear glasses there is a choice of over-goggles to fit over their glasses or prescription safety eyewear. The assessment needs to determine whether the safety glasses should have plastic glass or polycarbonate lenses.
Section 9 of the HSW Act requires the employer to provide free of charge personal protective equipment or any other items for the safety of employees where it is required by law.
In summary although there is a great deal of legislation around pertaining to the legal responsibilities for employers to follow the general health and safety act of 1974 gives the basic minimum requirements and any supplementary advice will be available about more specific areas if required. Compliance with these regulations should always be regarded as the barest minimum requirement which is expected from every employer by the courts if action was ever to be taken by an employee.
