Accidents can happen if you haven’t received the appropriate training. Whilst there are different regulations that apply to the workplace regarding training, general provisions can be found in The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999.

Common examples of accidents which have occurred due to inadequate training include injuries caused by complex work equipment, a failure of an employer to advise about the correct personal protective equipment, inadequate manual handling training an undefined system of work.

Sometimes your employer may seek to blame you for the accident, however if they have failed to train you they can ultimately be to blame, not you.

As with any accident in the workplace, it is important that you report your accident to your employer and give a detailed description of what you were doing when the accident occurred. Seek medical attention from a First Aider and get medical advice from your GP or local hospital.

If you are considering making a claim you need get specialist advice from experts in this field. Our solicitors with endeavour to get you the compensation you deserve if you’ve been injured due to insufficient training.

We will handle your claim on a No win, No Fee basis. This means that if your claim is not successful, you will have nothing to pay. We want to reassure you that there are no financial risks in making your claim.

Remember, legal proceedings must be initiated within 3 years from the date of your accident. Failure to do this may result in your claim being time-barred and you may not be able to make a claim for compensation.
