Health and safety is as prominent as it has ever been in the workplace, however there is simply no way of eliminating accidents completely.
In this country there are many dangerous lines of work which you would naturally expect accidents in. These include such sectors as manufacturing where heavy and powerful machinery is being used, the construction and building sector where people are working in high or dangerous locations and in the agricultural sector where highly dangerous machinery is used every day without much supervision.
Although we may not be surprised to hear about the dangers of working in these sectors, unfortunately accidents in the workplace don’t stop there. The reality is that accidents happen in all kinds of places of work from offices to restaurants and banks etc. Sometimes these accidents are the fault of the individual but sometimes they are the fault of the employer.
