Extent of loss or damage

An industrial accident or an occupational disease may result in a substantial loss. Apart from loss of income, the victim will often receive a hefty bill for medical expenses or care. The court may even award the victim compensation for immaterial damage (i.e. pain and suffering). So if you are running a business, it is important to identify the risks. We would advise you to start by observing the following guidelines:

  • Create a safe working environment. Follow the government guidelines on occupational health and safety.
  • Draw up clear instructions for staff and perform regular checks to ensure that your staff observe them.
  • Take out an appropriate insurance policy for your staff.
  • Don’t forget that you may be held liable for any loss or damage suffered by staff during staff outings or other work-related activities.
