Every employer has a legal duty of care over their employees, meaning they are obliged to make their workplaces as safe as possible under health and safety legislation. Nobody goes to work expecting to be injured, or worse, killed on the job. So whether you work in an office, on the factory floor, on a construction site or out on the roads your workplace is supposed to be somewhere you feel secure.
Sometimes employers are plainly negligent in carrying out their duties. Sometimes times it’s simply a matter of potential dangers having gone unnoticed. Either way, if an accident happens and employee is injured it must be taken seriously.
