If you are in any type of employment, then it goes without saying that your safety is of paramount importance. After all, it must be expected of your employer that they look after you.

There are very strict statutory regulations to ensure your safety if you are any type of employment, regardless of whether you are in the office or working on a building site. The regulations provide a comprehensive list of different scenarios to ensure safety in all aspects of employment. The responsibilities include (but are not limited to) having a safe working environment, safe walkways, safe equipment and machinery, appropriate safety equipment, appropriate training, appropriate risk assessments and the list goes on.

Sadly, some employers choose to neglect the regulations whether it is due to saving costs, as is commonplace in the current economic climate, or through sheer neglect and lack of care and respect for their employees. This is when the workplace can become a dangerous place and when an accident at work is most likely to occur.


Common workplace accidents

 
  • Slipping on wet and greasy floors from cleaning and spillages
  • Tripping on obstructions in the workplace like loose cables or tripping on defective or uneven flooring.
  • Injuries from defective work equipment such as drills, saws, trolleys or even office equipment such as chairs.
  • Back Injuries due to inappropriate lifting techniques as a result of lack of training or risk assessments.
  • Falling from a height due to inappropriate work equipment or safety equipment.
  • Injuries due to inappropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) such as lacerations which gloves could have prevented or eye injuries which goggles could have prevented.
