Employers in Ireland have a legal duty to protect the health, safety and welfare of their employees. This means taking reasonable steps to ensure employees do not suffer injury on the job. These steps include adhering to health and safety regulations, providing training and supervision, competent colleagues and providing the correct personal protective equipment (PPE), if required.
However unfortunately, accidents can happen at work. These are not just limited to ‘dangerous’ working environments such as constructions sites. Employees in offices and other places of work are also at risk, if the right health and safety precautions are not taken.
When someone is injured as a result of their employer’s (or colleagues) negligence, there are grounds for a workplace personal injury compensation claim. This means an employee is legally entitled to claim compensation for their physical, mental and financial damages.
