Faulty Work Equipment Claims

When you go to work for a living, naturally you will expect two things. Firstly that you will be rewarded for your efforts, usually through monthly wages, bonuses and benefits, and secondly that you will be able to go about job without getting injured.

An employee should be able to trust that the equipment they use and the environment around them is safe, well-maintained and dependable. Unfortunately, many of us will experience some kind of poorly functioning equipment during our working lives and while it is inconvenient at the very least, it can also be extremely serious and dangerous.

Employers have to comply with strict health and safety laws which require them to ensure that the equipment their employees use is suitable, safe, works efficiently and is well maintained. When it is not and an employee is injured, then the employer is responsible and you could be entitled to make a faulty work equipment claim. Work equipment includes not only the machines, but also everyday items such as buckets, brushes and desks.
