Defective work equipment

Man at work with defective equipment.

If you have been involved in an accident at work due to poorly maintained or defective work equipment our specialist Work Injury Solicitors can assist.

Work equipment is a general term relating to the tools of your employment, these can stem from the kettle in the kitchen you use to make tea right up to the most complex production line machinery.

Your employers have a duty to ensure that the equipment you use whilst at work is both safe and fully maintained to ensure that it does not fail and cause you injuries. Should this happen and you are suffering from injuries as a result of defective work equipment you most definitely are entitled to injury compensation.

In accordance with the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 your employers have a strict duty to ensure that they provide you with both the correct work equipment for the tasks you undertake and further that the same are safe in every way. No matter what if the equipment is either inadequate or fails in any way your employers are liable and your claim will succeed.

When providing work equipment your employers must also ensure that you are fully trained in how to use the same both safely and efficiently. Should you sustain an injury due to lack of training or due to someone elses fault you may be entitled to Personal Injury compensation.
