Accidents happen and may not be anyone’s fault. In those cases no one can be held liable.
However an employer is bound by legal duty to the protection of employees and anyone who is visiting the place of work including contractors. They must honor their responsibilities to ensure a safe environment. This includes the required safety equipment and proper machinery with adequate maintenance and in good working order to get the job done. Including where necessary, the providing of hard hats, eye protection, working boots, masks and protective clothing.
All premises should be clean and tidy and floors and corridors should be hazard free. There should be no obstruction of doors or gates. Proper desks, chairs and work stations should also be provided. Employee training for lifting heavy objects safely should also be in place as it is part of the employer’s responsibility.
Employers are also required to have employer’s liability insurance to cover any compensation awarded against them for any injury sustained to an employee due to negligence on their part.
