Lack of training or supervision

Accidents at work caused by lack of or inadequate training

This site is owned and managed by TO BE CONFIRMED a No win No fee law firm.

The UK along with all other EU countries, is extremely well regulated as far as the working environment is concerned.

The Health & Safety Executive and EU legislation ensures that the workplace is now a very safe place to be. At least that is the theory. Assuming all employers comply with the regulations.

Unfortunately some employers do not and accidents occur as a result of basic safety requirements not being met.

Here we deal with the training requirements that employers must comply with.

An employer must always carry out a risk assessment in the form of an investigation conducted to identify whether any particular act or operation gives rise to a safety risk or hazard. An employer must avoid jobs functions, duties or operations that carry a risk of injury being sustained by the employee.

The employer must risk assess which tasks or operations are likely to cause injury and take steps to reduce or remove the risk. Where there a risk of industrial injury it is necessary for the employer to consider what equipment or plant can be used to replace manual work. employers are also required to reduce the risk of industrial  injury by providing employees with proper training, instruction and supervision.

employees must be equipped for the task in terms of both the tools or plant provided and their ability to use the tools or plant. If an employee is injured because of the employers failure to adequately train, instruct or supervise then they will be liable for the injuries sustained.
