Accidents at Work

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.
