Unfortunately some employers neglect to carry out the required risk assessments and sometimes let dangerous practices and procedures take place in the workplace.

Common Types of Unsafe Work Areas

Some of the key types of issues Forbes Solicitors hear from clients involve:

  • Workers lifting heavy objects without the correct training
  • Workers not provided with the appropriate safety gear or Personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • Employers leaving workers exposed to tripping or slipping hazards
  • Employers leaving workers exposed to dangerous chemicals and substances

If you have suffered an injury due to any of the above issues, it's vital you get in touch with an expert solicitor at Forbes. We have a dedicated accident at work legal team ready to help you claim compensation for your injuries.
