While industrial accidents are always unfortunate, it can be unsettling to find that they are, all too often, easily preventable. Employers have a ‘Duty of Care’ to their employees, to do everything within their means to reduce the risks present in the workplace. Businesses have strict health and safety procedures and policies to follow, which should serve to safeguard their employees. Despite this, there are cases where Employers are shown to be negligent in carrying out such guidelines, either through ignorance or neglect.
In a scenario where an employee is injured, and the employer has been found to have been negligent, then the employer is considered liable and can be pursued for an industrial accident claim.
The Industrial Accident Guidelines
The legislation regarding industrial health and safety is clear; leaving no room for an employer to fail in providing a safe working environment for their employees. Depending on the industry, there are measures that should be taken, such as providing personal protective equipment (PPE), training and making recommended safety checks. If an employer fails to do so, and you suffer an injury as a result of that neglect, then you may be eligible for industrial accident compensation.
