You are also entitled to medical support, therapy , and other related services. If you need specialist care, we can help to put you in contact with companies and individuals who can help.
What to do after an accident at work
The first thing you should do after an accident is inform your employer. It is their responsibility to report accidents, pay you any sick pay, and give you time off work should you need it. You must also ensure that the accident book is filled it after the accident. All employees must have an accident book. This is mainly for the benefit of employees, as records can assist them in making a claim should they wish to do so.
