Faulty, dangerous or otherwise defective equipment is the cause of a lot of accidents at work and can pose a high risk of injury to employees. Defective equipment can be a risk in any environment but is more prominent in areas such as engineering, building and wholesale production. As personal injury solicitors we encounter a vast array of different accidents in the workplace. Quite often accidents involving work equipment can be caused by an employer’s negligence or breach of statutory duty. All employers are bound by Health and Safety Regulations which are designed to ensure that workers can operate in safe working environments. There is a varying degree of regulation applied depending on the place of work, type of work and type of equipment being used. For example, a workplace that requires ladders and scaffolding will obviously be subject to more intense regulation than an office. What Are Your Employers Obligations?
