Health And Safety Factors For Fast Food Restaurants

If you have had an accident at Subway, you need to understand that Subway must comply with all Health & Safety regulations that pertain to both the food service, and also the hospitality sectors. Regular inspections are made, and if anything is found to be substandard, then the Subway branch being inspected will not receive its certification.

If a breakdown in compliance protocols directly leads to a member of the public, or an employee coming to harm in some way, then Subway could be liable to pay compensation. They may also be sanctioned by the Health & Safety Executive, and in extreme cases, the branch would be closed down until such time as full compliance can be proven.

Accident Claims UK can help you make a claim against Subway for a breach in compliance with Health & Safety requirements if Subway was a fault for a injury you have received. Please call us on the number at the bottom of this page to find out how.
