Accidents at work do happen. They are quite common, especially in an intense working environment. It is the responsibility of the employer to take care of their employees and provide them with a safe and secure environment with best possible facilities.

Common reasons for claiming against an employer include; failure to carry out risk assessments, ignoring the recommendations stated in a risk assessment, inadequate training, and allowing employees to use faulty or unsafe machinery.

Fall from height claims

Working at heights is dangerous and extra care needs to be taken by the employer to ensure the worker’s safety.

Falling from height can cause serious injuries including broken bones, head injury and back injury etc. 

It is the responsibility of the employer to minimise working at height, but if that is not possible then the necessary safety measures must be put in place to avoid serious injury.
