Suffering from an illness can be devastating, but when you suffered the illness through work it can make it even more difficult.
Under the Health and Safety at Work Act, all employers have a duty of care to their employees. They must ensure they are protected from any potential health risks. This protection can be through providing the correct personal protective equipment (PPE), relevant and appropriate training, ensuring sufficient breaks and staff cover, and that any tools or equipment used are in good condition and suitable for the work undertaken.
Unfortunately, best practice is not always followed and workers can and do get hurt. Accidents or exposure to harmful noises or substances can have life-changing and even fatal consequences.
