Compensation for incorrect safety equipment in the workplace

It is the responsibility of your employee to provide you with adequate safety equipment in order for you to complete your job at the best of your abilities with minimal risk, so if this basic need isn’t upheld then you could end up becoming injured. If your health has been put at risk as a result of poor safety equipment then it is within your rights to make a claim for compensation, which could help you throughout the process.

There are many different types of injuries which can be caused by a worker not having the correct safety equipment, with some obvious injuries including lacerations or amputations where safety gloves or safety boots are not worn for example. If you believe this applies to you then you could be entitled to make a claim for negligence.

In what situations might I look to make a claim?

Safety equipment is essential in the workplace in order for you to be safe, 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 safety equipment

·         Claims if you are injured as a result of no safety equipment

·         Failure to provide goggles, safety boots, overalls

·         Claims against an unqualified co-worker

·         Claims against a manager who failed to provide safety equipment

Where could negligence occur in this situation?

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. If you haven’t been provided with appropriate safety equipment then you could be entitled to make a claim; this could be made against a number of people including your manager or the company itself whose actions have resulted in you becoming injured. 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.
