Shocking Statistics on Violence Suffered in the Workplace

The HSE has today published the ‘Violence in the Workplace’ report, which interrogates Home Office ‘British Crime Survey’ results and presents findings on work related violence.
HSE publishes this report as part of its responsibility for developing and implementing policy on work-related violence.

Estimates from the 2006 Fit3 employee survey suggest that 16% of workers have been subject to abuse or violence in the last three months. For 67% of these victims this happened more than once and 66% of victims knew the person who was abusive or violent towards them.

If you have decided to claim compensation for you injuries you need to make sure there is a record of the accident at your work place. If there is an accident book it will need to be documented here. If your company doesn’t have an accident book you should write to your employer detailing the accident and keep a copy for your own records. If you are too unwell to do this, ask a colleague or family member to do this for you.

Suffering from injuries caused from an accident at work is bad enough but when you have to pay for the medical expenses just adds insult to injury. If you are not getting paid as you’re off work how will you cope when the rent or mortgage needs paying at the end of the month? Making a claim will make you life much easier. You will get reimbursed for any expenses and loss of earnings.
