Employer Responsibilities

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is an independent organisation which acts in the interest of the general public to reduce the number of work accidents and illnesses which are suffered annually.

Conducting inspections of workplaces, it hands warnings to some so that they may improve, and prosecutes and fines those firms which have been given a chance to improve and have failed to do so.

The risk of losing money in the form of a fine, or having their workplace shut down, makes it more beneficial for companies to have a good safety record.

However if they fail to keep you safe and you suffer from an accident, you can claim compensation for your injuries.

Types of injury

Industrial injuries are generally classified as minor, moderate or serious. Those suffering minor injuries will make a full recovery and will not require much rehabilitation time. Moderate and more serious injuries often have long-term effects and could include:

  • Fractures and limb breaks
  • Head injuries
  • Falls from height
  • Slips, trips and falls
  • Amputation injuries
