Has your current or historic working environment lead to you sustaining an illness or disease? For example, did the combination of a noisy workplace and lack of protective equipment result in hearing loss? Or perhaps, did chemicals used in production cause a skin condition or a respiratory disease? You could make a claim if any of these events occurred.
Your employer has a legal responsibility to ensure the safety of the employees in the work place. Safety measures must be taken by the employer to protect the employees from any danger or harm. A few key measures that could be taken are:
- Equipping Personal protective equipment (PPE) if required
- Ensuring the employees are trained to ensure safety
