Claiming Compensation for broken safety equipment in the workplace

The workplace can quite often be a dangerous place and as such it is important that you are provided with adequate safety equipment, otherwise you could be at risk of an injury. It is a basic requirement in all workplaces and it is the duty of your manager to ensure that all employees have this equipment readily available to them; this can be done by carrying out regular inspections to ensure that everything is in full working order.

If you are unfortunate enough to suffer an injury at work as a result of broken safety equipment then you could be eligible to seek out compensation. As with all claims of this nature, you must be able to prove that your injury was caused by negligence and once you can your chances of a successful claim will dramatically increase. You shouldn’t have to suffer the consequences in silence, so if you feel that you have been affected by negligence, then a claim could be your best option.

In what situation might a claim be made?

Adequate safety equipment in the workplace is important because it helps to ensure the welfare of employees, so if you have been injured as a result of this then you could be entitled to make a claim. Some common examples of where a claim could be made include:

·         Claims against a failure to provide adequate safety equipment

·         Claims against incorrect equipment supplied

·         Claims if you are injured as a result of damaged safety equipment

·         Claims against a manager who failed to provide adequate safety equipment

·         Failure to provide vital working equipment such as boots, goggles and overalls

Who could a claim be taken out against?

Failing to provide adequate safety equipment is an extremely serious issue and if you have been injured as a result of this then you could be entitled to make a claim. Safety equipment in the workplace is designed to ensure the welfare of employees and it is the job of either your manager or a health and safety chief to uphold this, so if you believe that this is not the case then you could look to seek compensation from them. It is important to remember that you must be able to prove their involvement if you want the case to be successful, so make sure that you are certain before proceeding.
