Accidents at work

If an employee or a worker had an accident at work without having any of his or her faults, the person is too scared to ask for the deserved compensation he or she needs to get for the number of reasons. And these fears can be anything ranging from the fear of losing the job to becoming the reason of boss’ unhappiness. Because of these fears most of the members of staff do not claim for their lawful compensation when they meet any accident at work.

If employees face any such untoward accidents at work, they need to make rightful injury claim in which they need to show that the injuries at work is caused because of the negligence on the company’s or employer’s part.

The employer or the head of the organisation need to work under Reporting of Injuries and Diseases and Dangerous Regulations to absolutely report accident related work or any other dangerous occurrence at worksite. This needs to be reported under legal act that is RIDDOR Act of 1995. The Local Authority as well as Health and Safety Executive concerning this issue helps the owners to protect from future occurrence of similar accidents and at the same time reduce other risks concerned with the employees.

Injuries at work may be of different types, it can be employees getting hand or leg injuries, inhalation of something harmful, skin burns, got something in their eyes, hurt their backs by lifting something really heavy, or something hit them on their head or nay other part of the body. Although the commonest grounds of injuries at work occur due to handling of lofty items, exposure to perilous chemicals, long hair or jewellery tangled in  machines, tools or machinery, failure or misuse of vehicles, including inadequate training for safety given to employees. Workers or employees not only have accident or injuries at work but can get from other hazards such as electricity, height, sharp or powerful machinery, liquids or high pressure gases, poisonous gases, heavy structures or heat which might ruin their health, physical fitness and compel them to lead an unhealthy life.

If an employee meets an accident at his or her workplace without having any fault of his or her, then the person has civil or legal rights to get compensation from the employer and need not to be bothered about being kick out from the workplace if they claim compensation because no one can do that for their wrongful dismissal.
