Online Compensation Plans Highlight the Value of a Workplace Health & Safety Risk Assessment

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - April 18, 2011) - Recent reports that personal injury claims might soon be able to be completed online have highlighted the importance of preventing danger in the workplace.

Leading compliance test company, Office Test have commented on the news that compensation claims for injury caused by another's error totalling up to £50,000, will now be liable for online claims thanks to new proposals from Justice Secretary, Kenneth Clarke.

The moves are aimed at tackling the compensation culture, yet there are concerns that the ease and availability of using the internet to claim will actually result in making it easier and therefore cause more compensation claims.

However, Office Test are a business who are dedicated to offering the provision to ensure businesses minimise any risks to health and safety in the workplace. Providing a range of services, including everything from fire alarm testing to electrical maintenance and data cabling services, Office Test are experts in looking over the various aspects of the workplace to check that it passes all necessary safety checks.

A spokesperson for Office Test, comments: 'The current system means that people can claim for RTA personal injury claims of £10,000. But under the new proposal, there will be more pressure on the workplace to maintain high standards on health and safety to prevent accidents from occurring. As they will be placed under more scrutiny, things such as a health & safety risk assessment are incredibly helpful and affordable'.

Office Test specialists are well positioned to identify and reduce any risks or danger with their expert knowledge and awareness as well as advanced technology.
