Can I claim compensation for my accident at work?
Your employer has the duty to provide you with a safe place and systems of work – the equipment that is provided must be safe and you and also your colleagues should have received sufficient training to enable you to carry out your job in a safe environment
If you were injured because this did not happen, then yes you should be able to make a claim for compensation for your workplace accident. Try to ensure that your injury is recorded in your employer's Accident or Incident Book so an official record is kept - so make certain you are happy with the way it is noted. If possible take photographs of whatever caused the incident, use of a mobile phone camera is fine, and also make a note of any witnesses to what happened.
