In most cases, our solicitors will answer yes to this question. All employers in the UK are required by law to protect their workers from injury and to provide a safe and secure working environment.
If the work you do involves lifting and heavy lifting then you should be adequately trained and be given the correct clothing and equipment in order to do your job safely with reduced risk of hurting your back at work.
If you hurt your back at work lifting and did not know the correct procedures and methods in which to lift heavy object safely (manual handling training) then there could be a possible compensation claim.
