Your employer’s responsibility
It is the responsibility of your employer to ensure that you have everything you need to prevent an injury in your workplace. They are required by law to minimise the risks to your wellbeing while carrying out work in a factory.
It is their legal duty of care to:
- Provide health and safety training to protect your health, and that of others working in the factory
- Carry out regular risk assessments to identify areas that pose a threat to employee safety
- Provide suitable personal protective equipment, including hard hats, ear protectors and steel-capped boots
If your employer has failed to provide a safe working environment, and you are injured as a result, you are entitled to claim compensation. A financial reward will help to make up for the pain and suffering your injury has caused, while supporting you during recovery.
Compensation can cover the cost of medical bills, any required rehabilitation and lost earnings brought on by your injury.
