About Accidents at work
Accidents at work are not only the result of immediate and obvious dangers like trip hazards or falls but can also result from a lack of training, non use of recommended safety equipment required for the job or there may have been dangerous machinery that caused an employee to be injured. With regards to training or protective gear, you’re employer must provide this. If they fail to do so and you develop an illness, disease or injury, you may be able to make an injury compensation claim. Common accidents at work like trips, falls or getting trapped in machinery can result in fractured or broken bones or even the loss of a limb. Soft tissue damage, repetitive strain injury, loss of sight or hearing are prevalent in both office and industrial situations; while injuries like burns, respiratory problems and asbestos related disease are certainly more common in manufacturing or industrial environments. However, you don’t have to work in a high-risk environment like a building site to suffer a serious and often life-changing injury.
