Everyone has a right to be safe at work and your employer has a duty to take reasonable care for your safety while you are there. Wherever you work, you should not be exposed to an unreasonable risk of injury.
Workplace accidents can include many different types of incident, from injuries due to trips, faulty machinery or poor training through to work-related diseases, such as asbestosis, that can develop years after the employment has ended.
If you have been injured at work, whether you work in construction or retail, outdoors or in an office, or you or a member of your family is suffering from a work-related disease, you may be able to claim compensation.
