Workplace accidents is when a person at work is injured because of faulty equipment, the manner in which the work is being carried out, unsafe working premises or working environment.
Your employer has a legal duty to make sure that your work premises and the way that work is carried out and managed is safe. Employers can not prevent everything therefore these accidents are not intended by the Employer but could normally have been prevented or avoided if the Employer carried out regular health and safety risk assessments and put measures in place to limit the risks to employees and other users of the premises. The Employer’s legal obligations are paramount to the safety of their employees, guests, users and the general public. Therefore, they should be complying with their legal obligations which is also a moral obligation to limit the risk of injury.
