If you have fallen at work and suffered injury, whether at your main place of work or out on site or elsewhere (whether public or private property), you may be entitled to claim compensation.
This might be a fall from scaffolding, from or inside a vehicle or trailer, on walkways, stairs or other traffic routes within the workplace or on site.
Falls from height (eg roofs, scaffolding and ladders) are unfortunately not uncommon particularly in the construction industry and associated trades (electricians, plasterers, solar panel fitters) and the injuries can be serious and sometimes fatal.
Employers have strict obligations to ensure the safety of workers and the failures to do so appears all to frequently where businesses have been prosecuted and fined by the Health and Safety Executive.
Employers also have a duty to keep traffic routes clear from obstructions or dangers that pose a risk of injury to staff or visitors.
These obligations will apply to walkways, traffic routes and stairs within the workplace, on routes used to get to and from your work place and sometimes when out on site.
