Employers have a legal obligation to protect the safety of their employees. This includes making sure that all staff are competent and trained properly. There are numerous health and safety directives set in law that are designed to provide a safe working environment for everyone. If these are not followed then employers can face prosecution as well as be open to a factory compensation claim. If you have been involved in an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence or an unsafe working environment then call Ashley Ainsworth for advice on making a factory accident claim.
Below is a list of potential hazards that employers are expected to guard against:
