Freeclaim Solicitors: The Armed Forces have as much right to claim injury compensation as Civilians

Working in the Armed Forces carries with it immense responsibilities and is undoubtedly a particularly stressful career path.


United Kingdom – WEBWIRE – Monday, March 24, 2014

With soldiers required to perform at peak performance 100% of the time, overworking can result in negligence, and as studies suggest, eventually lead to mental health problems.

Working in the Armed Forces carries with it immense responsibilities and is undoubtedly a particularly stressful career path. Furthermore according to an online survey - work hours are being extended. Conducted by the Army Families Federation (AFF), their research showed 71% of surveyed personnel have stated working hours for military staff have increased, with 64% saying they work more than 10 hours per day.

Overworked and tired employees in all facets of employment can be more susceptible to all manner of injuries in the workplace. Employees of The Armed Forces are no exception. Long hours without adequate rest periods and breaks at work can seriously take a toll on a person’s wellbeing and jeopardise their safety and the safety of others.

With soldiers required to perform at peak performance 100% of the time, overworking can result in negligence, and as studies suggest, eventually lead to mental health problems. With the Armed Forces continuing to make redundancies in the lead up to the Army 2020 transformation, working hours are set to get worse causing greater stress on MoD (Military of Defence) employees.
