Most injuries that are caused by a lack of training involve complex machinery and the most common causes of these injuries are:
Your employer is legally obliged to provide adequate training, and any relevant development training as and when required, and as an employee, you are entitled to refuse a task if you don’t feel confident in the training given to do the task safely.
If you were involved in an accident that would have been avoided had you been given adequate health and safety training, or proper training on any machinery or equipment, or, you were injured as the result of someone else’s lack of training, you may be entitled to compensation. Your employer may be responsible for injuries sustained and if you’re entitled to compensation, their employer liability insurance is in place to cover your expense should they be found liable for your injuries.
Hattons can help get you the right level of compensation for your injury which will help recover lost earnings and provide funds to retrain or to take care of your family if you’re unable to work for the long term.
