Inadequate Training, Instructions, Information or Supervision
Unfortunately far too many accidents in the workplace occur not because equipment or the workplace itself is substandard, but because employees have not had the necessary training or have not been provided with the necessary instructions, health and safety information or supervision to ensure that they carry out their work in a safe way.
The law requires all employers to carry out detailed risk assessments which should identify any and all risks associated with work tasks, work procedures and work methods and then to provide suitable and adequate training and instruction as well as adequate information and supervision to those employees who carry out all of the tasks covered by the risk assessment.
Inadequate training and supervision places all employees at risk and therefore even if you have received adequate training, you may still be placed at risk in the workplace if a colleague hasn’t.
If you have been injured in an accident which could have been avoided had you been provided with adequate training, instruction and supervision, or if you have been injured by a colleague who has not received adequate training then we have a dedicated team specialising in employer liability claims who can help you.
