According to the statistics from the Health and Safety Executive, we found the following statistics relating to injuries in the work place..
New workers are more likely to be involved in an accident in the first 6 months of their job than those who have worked at the same firm for a longer period.
Employees who are new to a site, will not always remember security measures, may not recognise potential hazards, may not understand rules regarding safety equipment and may ignore warning signs or forget to wear protective gear.
Advice for new employees:
Did you know.. 8 out of 16 of recent fatal accidents happened during the first ten days of a new employees job, half of them on the very first day ? Therefore, it's important to know you've received the correct training and you're aware of all safety measures in a new workplace.
From our Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham, offices we have helped many victims who have been injured or become ill through the fault of their employers lack of training or poor safety equipment.
