Slips and Trips at Work

We won’t slip up when it comes to getting the very best for you.

You have the right to work in a safe environment regardless of your job. Your employer has a duty of care to ensure the risk of this is as minimal as possible. Whether you work in a quiet office or a busy factory, the laws are the same regarding slips and trips at work. If you have sustained an injury that wasn’t your fault, you may be able to make a claim for compensation.

Your employer is required by law to implement risk assessments on a regular basis to ensure that your workplace is safe to work in. These assessments will outline any slipping and/or tripping hazards, so if you have endured such an incident it may not have actually been your fault. Employers are also legally bound to make sure that your workplace does not fall into disrepair, therefore increasing the chance of you suffering an injury.

Health and Safety is the obligation of both the employer and the employee. If you have taken all reasonable steps to ensure that your actions have not put yourself or those around you in danger, but still found yourself injured as a result, then you are not to blame.

So, if you have taken a tumble at work and your employer could have done something to prevent this from happening, don't be afraid to pick up the phone and call Mercury Legal. You shouldn't be suffering as a result of your employers’ negligence and they will have insurance in place to cover them against situations like these.
