What happens if you are injured while visiting a business? Do the health and safety rules still apply to you? Will you be entitled to make a claim for compensation?

The answer is "yes", even if you are not employed in the workplace where the incident occurred, if the injury is in some way attributable to the negligence of an employer or manager or that workplace, you may be able to claim compensation on the relevant employer's liability insurance policy.

The law is on your side

Health and safety legislation does not only protect employees, but extends that protection to people who may be visiting business premises rather than working there.

This means that employers and, if different, the person in control of a business premises, must consider the risks that could be faced by anyone entering those premises – whether workers, customers, visitors, suppliers or contractors.

They must do all that is reasonably practicable to minimise the risks and ensure that everyone visiting the premises is aware of them and how to deal with them.

Failure to comply with these requirements could leave the employer and controller facing a Health and Safety Executive prosecution – as well as a compensation claim from the injured visitor.
