Whether you work in a factory, on a building site or even in an office – no environment is completely safe. It is not realistic to expect an employer to spot every hazard or prevent every possible accident from occurring. However they must take reasonable steps to manage the situation through:

  • Management of spillages and adequate cleaning regimes
  • effective systems for matting particularly in wet weather conditions
  • ensuring staff have a choice of suitable footwear
  • Adequate design of workplace and work activities.
  • Maintenance of plant and the work environment Prevention of contamination
  • Specification of appropriate flooring
  • Good housekeeping
  • Effective training and supervision

If you have been injured as a result of your employers failure to apply these standards then you might be able to make an accident claim.
