Make and Inadequate Training Accident Claim
Have you had an accident at work due to a lack of adequate 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.
If you’ve experienced a lack of training, you are vulnerable to an increased risk of serious injury at work and even death occurring in the workplace.
If you have been injured in a work accident due to lack of proper training from your employer, our expert personal injury team at Grieves Solicitors will help you gain the poor training compensation you deserve.
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 most people who have suffered an injury in this way report:
- 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.
Any accidents that occur on the premises must be logged in an accident book to keep record of what happened and how. This is a measure in your company’s insurance of safety at work.
Making a claim
If you have had an accident at work due to inadequate training of either you or a co-worker or if your employer has failed to provide any general safety information, you could be entitled to claiming compensation.
An injury caused by improper training can leave you in a serious amount of pain, as well as stress after the accident occurred. This could be a long term ordeal and may incur high costs due to loss of earnings, medical bills and after care costs. Financial compensation is intended to support victims, covering:
- Rehabilitation costs
- Medical bills
- Loss of income
- Psychological damage
- Mental distress.
