Slips, trips & falls in the workplace
Slips, trips and falls affect thousands of people every year and are amongst the most common form of workplace accident. Whether you are injured after tripping over equipment which wasn't cleared away or slip on wet floor, you could be entitled to personal injury compensation if the accident was caused by another person’s negligence.
Employers must take steps to ensure all hazards, such as wet floors, ladders and debris are minimised by following health & safety legislation, and using hazard warning signs, for example. Not only should a secure working environment be provided, but tools, machinery and protective clothing should all adhere to the appropriate legislation. Failure to do so could result in serious accident or injury.
All employers are required to have liability insurance to cover these types of claims.
