What is an Industrial Disease Compensation Claim?
Under the Health and Safety at Work Act, employers have a duty of care to their employees. This means that they are legally obliged to protect employees from health and safety risks in the workplace. Whereas employees are ultimately responsible for their own safety, it is, ultimately, the employer’s responsibility to provide a safe working environment.
Employees must adhere to all the stipulations of this act. They are responsible for providing suitable employee training and education of all environmental risks, providing PPE (personal protective equipment) and affording employees with suitable rest breaks throughout the course of the day.
A disease compensation claim is one that’s brought by employees who have sustained illness from working in an unsafe environment. Most businesses across the UK are required to have worker compensation insurance. This is to safeguard them should an employee make a disease compensation claim.
