Claim For Injuries at Work Caused by No or Inadequate Training
Employers have a legal obligation to ensure all of their workers are fully trained on basic safety requirements and use of equipment in and around the workplace.
The UK˜s working environment is extremely well regulated by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) and EU legislation which ensures businesses are safe places to work. However, this is only assuming all employers comply with regulations.
Unfortunately some employers fail to meet these requirements, by providing a lack of training, and as a result increase the risk of serious injury and even death occurring in the workplace.

Causes of injury due to lack of training at work
Without adequate knowledge, employees will not be able to follow basic safety precautions and may cause an accident. Most lack of training claims involve improper use of heavy machinery, but injuries are also commonly caused by:
- Moving machinery
- Failure to apply safety equipment
- Manual handling
- Working at heights
Employers have a responsibility to ensure their employees can complete tasks in a safe and efficient manner. To do this they must provide training to all employees who are required to perform certain tasks, even if the worker has received training whilst performing a similar role with a previous employer.
Making a claim
