Compensation for faulty equipment in the workplace

If you are injured at work as a result of faulty equipment then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. By ensuring that all work equipment is maintained to a high standard and that it is in efficient working order by carrying out regular inspections can be a great for business to safeguard an injury, but unfortunately this isn’t always the case and people do get hurt. So if you have been injured at work because of faulty equipment, then a claim could help you.

There are many instances where you could become injured in the workplace as a result of faulty equipment, leaving you in a lot of pain and trauma. It is imperative that you have safe equipment to work with, so if this basic requirement isn’t upheld and you are injured, then you shouldn’t have to suffer in silence.

Where might you look to claim?

Providing equipment that is in full working order is essential to your safety in the workplace, so if you feel you haven’t been provided this then you could look to make a claim. Some common examples of where a claim could be made include:

·         Claims against a failure to provide safe equipment

·         Claims against incorrect equipment supplied

·         Claims if you are injured as a result of faulty equipment

·         Claims against a manager who failed to provide correct equipment

Where could negligence occur in this situation?

If you haven’t been provided with the correct equipment then you could be entitled to make a claim, especially if your health has been put at risk. In general any compensation claim that you make should be directed at a person who has displayed negligence towards you and has therefore put your health at risk. This could be made against a number of people including your manager or the company itself whose actions have resulted in you becoming injured.
