Had an Electrical Accident At Work?

Electricity can be a lethal ingredient in a work accident. Each year, there are approximately 30 fatal accidents at work involving electricity as well as around 1000 less serious incidents. The risk is higher for people working outside or in wet conditions, but with electrical equipment, no matter where you are, there is an element of risk.

Employers’ Duty Of Care And Electrical Accidents At Work

Employers have a duty to protect their employees from such electrical accidents. They should both ensure the equipment is safe and train their employees appropriately in its use.

Satisfaction

A very friendly, helpful service. I was kept up-to-date on every aspect of my claim.

What’s more, employees should report any electrical overload or short circuit that causes a fire or an explosion, whether or not it results in an injury to anyone.
