Poor Supervision In The Workplace Claim
Unfortunately it’s a fairly common situation whereby workers are put under pressure from supervisors to increase productivity, output and performance by cutting certain corners, with management turning a blind eye to the practice. Unfortunately poor, inadequate or insufficient supervision in the workplace results in a huge number of accidents and injuries, some of which are life changing.
The role of a supervisor is to supervise, not to offer ill advice or to place employees in danger. It is also not acceptable for management to turn a blind eye to these practices either. Workers’ safety should never be jeopardised for the sake of profit. If you have been injured as a result of an accident at work, and you believe that poor supervision was to blame then call us today. If you’re based anywhere in the Manchester area then we can help you to claim the compensation you deserve. Because we work on a no win no fee basis you have nothing to lose, and no costs to worry about.
It is important that in the workplace supervisors make sure that workers are following protocol, that safety equipment is being used, that it is being used in the right way and that the coordination of jobs is safe. It is also important for supervisors to offer advice and training where necessary, and to be on hand should any difficulties or concerns arise. Failure to fulfil the role of supervisor adequately could very well place lives at risk.
Accidents And Injuries In The Workplace
Today there are so many powerful machines and tools in the work place, and there is so much pressure to work hard and be productive that it’s easy to cut corners. But cutting corners should never be practised where it could endanger people. Safety equipment and clothing is there for a reason, and failing to provide this, or to provide adequate equipment or training is often the direct cause of accidents and injuries.
The cost of having an accident or injury in the workplace can be severe, not just in terms of finance but in terms of health and well being. An accident in the workplace will inevitably result in time off work, and it may be that the worker is unable to continue fulfilling the same role as before. The cost of medical bills and care as well as lost earnings and decreased quality of life all means that a compensation claim is often the only way to help sort the mess out which is caused by accidents such as these.
There are many accidents in the workplace every year, with a variety of causes. In some cases the accident or injury was as a result of damaged or defective machinery, and in others it was the environment which was dangerous, such as poorly maintained stairs, cluttered corridors or stairs, or blocked fire doors. The role of a supervisor is often to check for potential hazards like these, but where budgets are tight many businesses are cutting corners by reducing the role of supervisor.
