Statistics showed that last year the majority of people working in full-time employment admitted to spending more time at work than they did at home. When this is the case you have every right to want to feel safe in your workplace.
It is your employer’s legal responsibility to ensure that all procedures are in place to ensure employee safety.
But when these responsibilities are neglected someone can get injured through no fault of their own, which can have a negative impact on not only their chosen profession but on their daily life.
This could be from not being trained properly on company machinery to not being given the correct safety clothing/ equipment. Nobody should have to worry that claiming for a workplace injury will affect their relationship with their employer or colleagues or have an impact on their job security.
Claiming for workplace injury isn’t going against your employer, its simply getting what you deserve and most companies have insurance policies set up to cover themselves in these kind of situations.
