Claiming compensation for accidents sustained working in mines and quarries

Mining and quarrying, like all other industries in the UK, are subject to comprehensive health and safety laws designed to protect employees from coming to harm in the workplace. Employers have a legal duty of care to their employees and must take all reasonably practicable steps to ensure that the workplace is a safe environment.

The mining and quarrying industries are particularly dangerous and as a result it is crucial that employers respect all health and safety legislation, including:

• The Mines and Quarries Act 1954

• The Mines and Tips Act 1969

• The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974

• The Management and Administration of Safety and Health at Mines Regulations 1993

• The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999

Whilst complying with so many pieces of legislation may seem like chore to many employers, it is certainly in their best interests to do so. Indeed, there have been over 3000 accidents in these industries over the last 15 years alone and many have probably gone unreported.

Those workers who are injured in workplace accident which was not their fault could be entitled to claim compensation for their pain, suffering and financial loss. Making a claim will require the help of an expert work accident solicitor who will quickly be able to determine whether or not there are grounds for a claim before working to find the evidence needed to support it.
