Unsafe workplaces lead to office accident claims
Employers have a duty to ensure that every employee is provided with a safe workplace. Offices may not seem to be as hazardous as factories, warehouses and construction sites but health and safety regulations apply to offices in just the same way. If an employer fails to protect an employer’s safety at work they (or their insurers) may be liable to pay compensation for an office accident claim.

Common types of office accident compensation claims
Office slip and trip accidents – these are usually caused by a worker tripping over trailing cables or slipping on a wet floor.
Office accidents caused by faulty equipment – for example, a faulty chair which collapses or an electric shock from faulty electrical equipment.
Falls from height – this type of accident can occur in an office if unsuitable equipment is used to reach items at a higher level – for example, an employee who falls whilst standing on a chair to reach a high shelf.
Office lifting injuries – office workers can sustain injuries, including back injuries, when lifting heavy items.
These types of accident are often easily prevented and if an employer fails to take steps to safeguard your safety and you are injured then it is likely that an office accident claim can be made.
If you have suffered an injury in any type of office accident contact us to see if you can make a claim for work injury compensation.
