Fallen through a skylight at work? Claiming compensation

workplace accidents

If you’ve fallen through a skylight during the course of your employment, you may be able to make a claim for workers’ personal injury compensation.

Health and safety at work regulations are numerous and they’re many. There can be a number of regulations that apply for employees working at height, and these should ensure that an accident never occurs.

However, as we know from many years of representing injured workers, the law isn’t always followed. When that happens, people are injured, and we can help them.

Work at height injury claims

ppe work claims

Work at height injury claims can be some of the most common types when it comes to workplace accidents, and they can also be some of the most serious.

According to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), one of the most common causes of workplace fatalities is accidents from height. It’s important for employers to ensure that they comply with the law and do all they can to avoid their employees being at risk of a fall from height injury. It’s also important for employees to do their jobs and protect themselves from danger as well.

The law is clear, and there’s plenty of simple things that employers can enforce to ensure that employees aren’t injured from a fall from height. Where they fail to protect their people, injured accident victims can be entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation.

ladder injury at work claims

Working in construction or manual labour has its obvious risks which is why it’s important to ensure every worker is properly trained to handle equipment and materials safely without putting themselves – or others – at risk.

Risk assessments should be carried out to check if working at a certain height requires a barrier or a harness to stop people from accidentally falling off. Where ladders are needed, staff must be trained and the ladders must be appropriate for the task and safe to use.
