Make a claim

Accidents can arise from a lack of training in the workplace. The provision of training adequate for the job role is a legal requirement for all employers. 

Some jobs are more at risk of health and safety accidents than others and therefore require more training. For example, if you work in a factory, on a construction site, as a tradesperson or in agriculture then the likelihood of you experiencing an accident at work increases.

Employers Have a Duty of Care

The law states that all employers must abide by the terms and conditions laid down by the Health and Safety Executive. Currently, employers must also abide by EU regulations, but this could possibly change in the future. Some of the regulations that must be followed by employers are to provide training to all employees as and when it is needed. 

There are extra protections and regulations which are also specific to certain industries. For example, if your job involves working with harmful chemicals, then your employer must abide by the terms of the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health 2002 law. This includes ensuring that employees are given the correct number of breaks during a certain working period and are provided with protective clothing and equipment e.g. safety goggles or gloves.

Types of Lack of Training at Work Claims

Repetitive strain injuries which are sometimes referred to as work-related upper limb disorders can occur If proper training has not been provided. Examples of these types of injuries include a bricklayer’s shoulder becoming damaged or a warehouse worker developing back pain. Similarly, if machine operatives are not properly taught and instructed thoroughly about all aspects of how to use their machine then this could result in injury. 

Another example of a lack of training claim would be injury through working at height. If your employer has not provided training on how to safely work at height, such as when on a ladder, then you could pursue a lack of training at work claim. 

A lack of manual handling training which results in injury could also be the basis of a claim. Manual handling training is important within many different workplaces where employees are required to move objects or equipment around. If your accident could have been prevented if you had been given the training you required, it’s also possible that you could make a claim. 

Claiming Compensation

If you have been injured at work in an accident that wasn’t your fault, no matter the accident type, then you deserve to be able to claim for a loss of earnings. If additional costs have also arisen due to your injuries such as a loss of earnings due to being unable to work, then this could possibly also be covered by compensation.
