Compensation for Unsafe Working Environment

When it comes to working it is one activity that we spend most of our lives doing and as a result, it’s something that we need to take seriously. Our working environment is a place where we do spend a lot of time and as a result, ensuring that this area is safe and secure at all times is incredibly important. It is the responsibility of an employer to ensure that any working area is safe for their employees and if they are negligent in this area then the employees could be eligible to make a claim.

When it comes to making a working environment safe this involves the employer alerting staff to any potentially dangerous situations or providing them with ample safety equipment and training if they are needed to enter these areas. If you have been injured in a workplace where you feel that your employer has not adhered to these standards, then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim against them.

What is an example of an Unsafe Working Environment?

There are many examples of injuries which you could incur from unsafe working conditions where you could make a claim and some of these include:

  • Injuries from a fall from a height
  • Injuries from falling items
  • Injuries from contact with dangerous chemicals
  • Injuries from inhaling dangerous fumes
  • Physical injuries from hazards in the workplace. 

Who could I make a claim against?
