If your employer has failed to provide you with suitable PPE and you have been involved in an accident, then you might be able to make a claim for compensation. Speak to our expert team today about your case by calling 0333 323 5292, or fill in the enquiry claims form on this page and we will get back to you shortly.

Injuries caused by lack of PPE

The type of injury suffered depends on the piece of equipment you were without during the time of the accident. The most common injuries caused by a lack of PPE include:

  • Crushed limbs
  • Lacerations
  • Amputations
  • Brain damage
  • Broken bones

If you have suffered with a condition that was brought on by not having the right protective equipment, then you could make a claim.

What are my employer’s responsibilities?

Your employer is legally responsible for your safety while at work and must do everything they can to reduce the risk of an accident taking place. This includes:

  • Carrying out regular risk assessments to identify when PPE is needed
  • Providing adequate training on how to use PPE properly
  • Enforcing the use and wearing of PPE when it is required
  • Inspecting and replacing damaged PPE
