The advances in modern technology have made the workplace a much safer environment than ever before, with safety measures in place in case of an incident.

What type of tools and equipment is used in the workplace?

Depending on what type of environment you work in, there could be plenty of items which could result in you becoming injured. Some common examples of equipment that you might use include:

·         Incidents which involve electrical items

·         Incidents which involve power tools/heavy machinery on a building site

·         Incidents involving stationary such as scissors, staplers and box cutters I

·         Ovens, microwaves, toasters and other appliances in a commercial kitchen

·         Computers, printers, and photocopiers in an office

Where could negligence occur in this situation?

If you believe that you have been injured in the workplace as a result of unsafe tools and equipment then you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation. In a situation such as this there could be a number of people who could be at fault, whether it’s a foreman on a building site or a manager in an office who has failed to comply with safety regulations. Before you consider making a claim however, it is important to remember that this can only be successful if you can prove someone has been negligent.
