Employers have to follow strict legislation to ensure that their employees are safe from injury and harm. If an employer has not complied with the legislation and this failure has caused your injury, then you may be entitled to compensation.
The legislation covers everything from the condition of the floor and walkways to providing safe working equipment, ensuring a safe system of work, and manual handling at work.
Employers have to carry out a risk assessment to ensure they have reduced the likelihood of injury to its lowest practicable level. If work practices are changed after an accident, this can be a sign that the pre-accident work system was not reasonable.
