Every year, around two million people in Britain are injured or made ill by their work; and each week, around 500 leave their jobs as a result of work-related illness or injury. This guide gives practical advice on the most common health risks at work and how they can be dealt with. It explains how anyone can use his or her legal rights to avoid injury and illness, and how to take action to recover your health and get back to work. There is also advice on how to get compensation if necessary, and the book is peppered with real-life case studies. Each workplace health issue is dealt with in an approachable way, including stress, violence, bullying, muscle aches and strains, PMS, what to expect from your doctor, your rights, and personal injury claims.
