Inadequate Protective Equipment

There will be some tasks in a work environment which will require protective equipment. It is the duty of your employer to make you aware of this, facilitate any related training and provide the tools or clothing concerned. Known as PPE (personal protective equipment) is in fact the last resort, as your employer should also have in place a health and safety programme which keeps accidents to the minimum.

Types of equipment include:

  • Eye Protection
  • Harnesses
  • Overalls
  • Safety helmets
  • Reinforced shoes
  • Ear defenders
  • High visibility clothing

If an accident has happened within the workplace that has occurred due to the fact that you were given inadequate protective equipment, or, if the consequences of an accident were made worse by the fact that you did not have the appropriate protective equipment, you can make a claim for personal injury compensation.

Common injuries

PPE should protect you from accidents which may injure you or initiate an industrial illness. The most common consequences of inadequate protective equipment are:

  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Lacerations or amputations
  • Occupational dermatitis
  • Vibration white finger
  • Occupational asthma
  • Asbestosis related illness
  • Industrial deafness

Making a claim

If you are an employee who has suffered an injury through no fault of your own you can make a claim for personal injury compensation. The reward you receive may offer financial help in supporting you through the period of your injury. It may also help prevent further accidents happening as changes to health and safety measures are tightened. Employers expect there to be compensation claims and factor this into their budgets by taking out liability insurance. At our expert solicitors can guide you through the process.
