Working in a garden presents it’s own unique hazards. From the use of machinery such as lawnmowers and trimmers to the chemicals used which could be harmful to your health. It is important that you follow all health and safety rules in order to protect yourself.

A few of the most common types of injury in a garden include:
  • Slips, Trips or Falls
  • Electric Shock
  • Cuts
  • Chemical Burns
Alongside these injuries symptoms of harmful exposure to chemicals can include:
  • Skin reactions
  • Lung damage
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness

In the event of any accident at work we always advise you seek medical attention first. Make sure your accident is recorded in the accident book if not at the time of accident then as soon as possible afterwards.

The accident book is very important when making a claim for compensation. Although the compensation is not dependant on an entry in the accident book it will certainly help us to present your case with as much evidence as possible.
