Claiming compensation for a lack of safety equipment when working with glass

Working with glass requires a lot of concentration and adequate safety equipment; such is the risk that it poses to your health. It is the duty of your manager to ensure that all employees have adequate safety equipment to protect them such as safety gloves and overalls, so if you believe this isn’t the case then you could look to make a claim for negligence as you could be left in a lot of pain as a result.

If you have had an accident in the workplace which you believe could have been prevented, then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. It is the role of your manager to uphold health and safety regulations at all time, so if they have failed to provide you with appropriate safety equipment then a claim could be taken out against them for negligence.

Common causes of glass related claims

Glass is one of the most underestimated materials in the workplace, but if it breaks and you come into contact with it then you can be left with serious injuries. There are a number of common injuries which can occur when working with glass, including:

·         Claims against a failure to provide adequate safety equipment

·         Claims if you are injured when working with glass

·         Claims if you are injured as a result of falling sheet glass

·         Claims if you have lost a limb as a result of falling/broken sheet glass

·         Failure to provide adequate safety equipment such as gloves, goggles and overalls

Who might be at fault in this situation?

If you believe that you have been injured in the workplace as a result of a lack of safety equipment, then you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation. In general, a claim of this nature would usually be directed at a manager who has inadequately provided this equipment, but action could also be taken against a co-worker if their mistake resulted in your injury. If your health has been put at risk and you can prove it in court, then you shouldn’t have to suffer in silence – making a claim could be a huge benefit to you and it could help you with any financial issues you have incurred as a result.
