Slips and Trips at Work Lawyers*

Many people who have suffered a slip or trip feel it was their fault; they were not looking where they were going, or the accident could have been avoided by being more careful. However, when it comes to accidents in the workplace, most cases can be prevented if an employer puts the correct procedures in place.

What measures should an employer take?

Employers should have the following procedures in place:

  • Regular risk assessments
  • Ensuring appropriate footwear is worn
  • Making sure the workplace is kept tidy and clear of debris
  • Ensuring spillages are cleaned up immediately, and wet floors are adequately signposted

If you feel that your employer did not take adequate action to protect your safety at work, you should seek advice straight away. The time limits for bringing a claim* are limited.

Can I Claim* Even if I am Not an Employee?

You may have a legal remedy available to you even if you are not an employee of the site where your accident happened. Contractors, casual workers, visitors and members of the public may also be protected under the law. As a result, it is vital to obtain guidance on your legal position. You can contact our solicitors today.
