Often people do not realise that injuries can occur in offices. The injuries that can occur can affect you as much as any other type of accident. The employer is responsible to ensure there is a safe place of work, safe system of work, appropriate training and competent colleagues. Items like ensuring the correct equipment is supplied free from faults, making sure the entrance and exit to the workplace is safe and not a slip or trip hazard, and ensuring employees are trained properly are just some examples.
Below are some of the injury compensation claims that we have dealt with:
- Slipping or tripping on damaged flooring
- Slipping on spillages
- Tripping over cables that should be secured out of the way
- Tripping over boxes left on the floor
- Repetitive strain injury, e.g. lifting heavy items
- Suffering electric shock from faulty equipment
- Receiving burns from faulty equipment
- Falling from height
