If one of your employees gets hurt at work, could you be liable? That’s one of the questions every business owner should be asking.
Recently we heard about a small transport company that was fined $50,000 and incurred legal costs of $60,000 because a driver who had climbed on top of the truck to check the load slipped on a wet ladder.
He suffered only a minor cut and a bruise to his hand and took no time off work but the business owner was prosecuted for failure to provide a safe workplace.
This is just one example of the risk of running a business.
