Your employer has a responsibility to provide you with adequate training, making you aware of the best ways to stay safe in your working environment and avoid personal injury.
If you have suffered a debilitating injury, and feel that inadequate training or supervision was directly responsible for the accident, contact a lawyer as soon as possible to discuss your options.
Making a Claim
Whilst accidents arising from inadequate training typically affect those employed in more dangerous industries, there is potential for anyone to fall foul of an accident at work resulting from inadequate training or supervision. Whether you work in a warehouse or an office, your employer is required to:
- provide regular training, refreshing previously taught skills and teaching new ones
- ensure management reinforces the need to follow correct procedures, as taught during training sessions
- make a full assessment of each employee’s abilities
- ensure that vulnerable employees, such as pregnant women or temporary workers, are properly catered for in the working environment
If you believe that your employer has neglected their duties to provide you with proper training in best practice for your workplace, and this has resulted in a personal injury and subsequent medical fees, loss of earnings and pain and suffering, you may be eligible to make a claim.
