Accident at Work

Employers have what is called a ‘duty of care’ to ensure the safety of their staff during the course of their employment. This duty is to ensure the environment their staff is working in is free from hazards and a safe place to work and visit.

Employers also have a duty to minimise the risks of suffering an injury during the course of your employment by doing things such as providing training, supplying protective equipment, and carrying out regular inspections and maintenance to machinery, etc. Unfortunately, here at Redkite Solicitors we know that this is not always the case. Each day, our expert personal injury team help people to claim compensation for the injuries they have sustained at work.
