EMPLOYER LIABILITY

Employers are legally responsible for the health and safety of their employees while they are at work.

 

You may be entitled to compensation if you have an accident at work that was due to your employer’s breach of duty.

 

Your employer should ensure that:
· Work premises are free of hazards.
· Employees are sufficiently trained to carry out their role.
· Relevant health and safety training should be provided.
· All equipment used to perform requirements of the role should be safe and well maintained.
· Relevant safety equipment should be provided when needed · Risk assessments should be conducted on a regular basis.

 

Industrial Disease

Industrial disease will typically involve exposure in the workplace over an extended period of time to some harmful substance, work practice or noise level. When you are making an industrial injury claim, you will need to be able to prove that your working environment and your employer’s negligence resulted in your condition.

If you have suffered from the following:
· Asbestosis
· Mesothelioma
· Industrial deafness (noise-induced hearing loss)
· Or any other disease contracted at your place of work, you may be entitled to make a compensation claim.
