Falls and Slips at Work
Falls and Slips at Work Compensation Claims
Regardless of what industry sector you work in, as an employee, you should expect your working environment to be kept as safe as possible by your employers.
However, if something does go wrong and your company fails to put the right safety procedures and systems in place, there is a possibility of slips, trips and falls. Typical circumstances we see claims arise from include:
- employers failing to fix proper handrails on stairs and ways of access
- employers not placing hazard signs on wet floors after cleaning
- employees working in areas that are not lit appropriately
