Thousands of workers die each year from illnesses caused by overexposure to hazardous substances at work. Employers have a legal duty to protect their employees in the workplace. This includes preventing or reducing workers’ exposure to hazardous substances at work and complying with the COSHH. However, this isn't always the case.
That's why we're doing all we can do to equip employees to know whether their employer is complying with the law, with the aim of reducing the number of injured workers we see.
Asbestos is the biggest single cause of work-related deaths in the UK.
Our 'Asbestos: Past, but present' campaign highlights issues around asbestos exposure and supporting those who are suffering. We are giving a voice to those with asbestos-related illnesses, their families, and communities. We want them to tell their stories - past and present.
We are there for those who have suffered as a result of medical negligence, but where appropriate we also campaign to force medical providers to put patient safety ahead of profits.
Thompsons Solicitors is proud to have supported campaign efforts in Colombia, Palestine, Cuba, South Africa and Venezuela.
