Keeping Well at Work: A TUC Guide

by PhilipPearson (Author)

Synopsis

Have you suffered an injury at work? Is work making you unwell? Are you unsure of your rights? Every year some two million people in Britain are injured or made ill by their work. Most people make a full recovery, but each week around 500 people leave work as a result of a work-related illness or injury. However, all these injuries and illnesses caused by work can be prevented. This practical handbook provides advice on the most common health risks at work, and how you can tackle them. It explains how you can use your legal rights and common sense to avoid injury and illness, and how to take action to recover your health and get back to work as soon as possible. There is advice on what to tell your GP, how you can get compensation if necessary, and tips on where to get help when returning to work. Every aspect is dealt with in an approachable way, including: tackling stress at work; workplace violence; bullying; muscle aches and strains; what to expect from your doctor; your rights and the regulations; personal injury claims. With plenty of real life case studies to illustrate the problems that can be encountered, the book offers positive suggestions about preventing ill health and improving your well-being at work.
