As per the reports it is found that each year the millions of people throughout the UK are affected from work related illness or injury. Most of such illnesses or injuries may occur as a result of employer’s or individual’s negligence.
The common illnesses cause whilst at work includes:
- Repetitive strain injury
- Vibration white finger
- Hearing loss
- Occupational cancer
- Skin conditions
Factories or industries where employees are exposed to harmful substances are more prone to such illnesses. Being an employer, they have the duty of care to follow all possible health and safety procedures to avoid the risk of illnesses/injuries.
If an employer fails in their duties resulting in minor or serious injury to employees, the employer is liable for their act of negligence. Employees have the right to be safe in the workplace. So, the appropriate level of risk assessment is to be completed by the employer to ensure a safe environment for the employees to work in.
