Work Related Accidents

You go to work and the last thing you expect is to be injured. It happens everyday though. A work related accident occurs where, in the course of your employment, you sustain an injury due to the negligence of your employer. The law provides an employer has duty of care towards its employees. This obligation is governed by common law and by the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005, Occupier's Liability Act, 1991 and various other pieces of legislation, with their applicability dependent on the industry an employee works within.

If any injury is sustained at work, or going to work, then a claim can be brought to the Personal Injuries Assessment Board (PIAB). To read more on this please see here 

Employee related accidents can occur a number of different ways, some of which are as follows: 

  • Slip, Trip and Fall Accidents- This occurs where an employee slips, trips and falls at work or in the course of work, for example on a slippery surface or falling from a ladder. 
  • Falling objects- This can occur in a number of ways, whether boxes or bricks in a warehouse or on a construction site. 
  • Electrical Burns- Chemical, electrical and fire burns are all common injuries sustained at work and which a claim is actionable.  
  • Dangerous machinery- Crashes, unsuitable equipment or lack of supervision while driving machinery can result in injuries sustained at work.  
  • Office Hazard- Any objects which cut or injure a person, particularly where the safety of the employee has not been given the necessary attention, for example, where an employee has not been provided with the appropriate safetywear (PPE) or has been directed to engage in a dangerous activity while at work. 


Most accidents can be avoided at work if the proper supervision and equipment is provided. The absence of complying with safety at work exposes of an employer to a personal injuries claim for compensation.
