Each year countless accidents take place at work. These can be in a factory, working on a construction site, office, or at school or college. Many suffer horrific injuries that can affect their lives and working abilities.

Accidents at work may take place for several reasons, more than often this is due to the carelessness of employers regarding health and safety at work.

Injuries often happen when staff or managers fail to follow health and safety rules and carrying out risk assessments, or even when safety laws are bypassed.
