Close to £300,000 Paid out to Teachers in Injury Compensation

Posted in: School Accidents Workplace Injuries Workplace Slip 

Around £290,000 was given to teachers who had been injured in the workplace in the last year, according to a new study carried out by the-the Educational Institute of Scotland (EIS).

According to the figures collected by the organisation, one teacher alone was offered £150,000 after slipping on ice outside a school. Slips, trips, and falls were the most common type of injury with the vast majority a result of dangerous, uneven or slippery surfaces. Other common injuries were due to objects falling onto teachers, with one being injured by a window falling inwards.

The vast majority of cases were settled outside of court through settlement agreements.

Accidents in the Workplace: Making a Personal Injury Claim

Larry Flanagan, the EIS general secretary, said:

“Teachers and lecturers are entitled to safe workplaces and the evidence over this year is a worrying testimony to a lack of diligence by employers.”

An employer has a duty of care to you and all members of staff to make sure that you are working in safe, hazard-free conditions with proper safety equipment and protection. A failure in this duty can result in your employer being responsible for your injuries or liable for any accident you have.
