Although this is a high-risk industry, you still deserve to be provided with certain equipment and facilities to ensure safety in your specific job. This may include:
- Safety harnesses if you are working on scaffolding
- Facial protection when welding
- Appropriate training for your role
- Onsite first aid equipment and facilities
- Regular breaks to prevent accidents caused by tiredness and lack of concentration
- Defined walkways that are free of obstructions
These are just some of the provisions your employer must make and you as an employee also have responsibilities to ensure your own safety at work and the safety of co-workers. However, if you have had an accident, and it wasn't your fault, then you have the right to pursue compensation.
What Costs Can I Claim?
Are you unable to work? Are you facing debt due to loss of earnings? Perhaps you feel you unable to return to work due to the fear of an accident happening again? If your employer is shown to be negligent, you could be entitled to compensation that will help with medical care, ongoing rehabilitation and mental health treatment.
