5 Steps You Should Take Following an Injury at Work

Report the Accident

When you suffer an accident at work (either on the premises or during working hours), you should notify your health and safety representative. If you’re not sure who this is, speak to your manager or supervisor. All employers are legally required to have an accident book in order to record any incidents that take place on the premises; make sure your accident is recorded.

Think About the Cause of the Accident

In order to make a successful accident at work claim, your legal team will need to establish that your employer was at fault for your injuries. If for example, you slipped or tripped on a wet floor that wasn’t clearly signposted or marked, this could be regarded as negligence on the behalf of your employer, giving you grounds for a claim.

Take Photos

If your accident at work was caused by a particular hazard or faulty equipment, you should try and take photographs of the cause, where possible. If you can provide photographic evidence, this is bound to help with your injury claim.

Don’t Discuss Fault

Following the accident, it’s important not to discuss fault at all as you don’t want to say anything that may prejudice your claim. Do not feel pressurised into saying that it was actually your fault (when it clearly wasn’t) as this can potentially affect the success of accident at work claims.

Seek Medical Attention

After an accident, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible. Your employer should have a first-aider on the premises but you should also go to hospital or to see your GP where necessary.
