Accident at Work
You can make a claim if you had an accident at work due to a hazardous environment, defective equipment, stress, manual handling, sub-contractors or industrial disease.
Your employer is required by Law to provide you with a safe working environment, the right tools and equipment and appropriate training to ensure you safely perform your work.
If your employer fails to meet any of these requirements and you are injured as a result, you are legally entitled to claim compensation.
If you feel put off by the idea of making a claim against your employer, you should consider that your employer is insured against work accident claims through their Employer Liability insurance.
