Hello folks, I work for an engineering company and 2 years ago I had a works accident which damaged my back. I made a successful injury claim through the employment tribunal system and still suffer considerable pain at times. The company have a Physio service contracted to visit 2 days a week and I attend once every week. I have always had the same physio attending for the past 8 months who has helped greatly and a full log of treatment was kept up to date on their computer system. However a different physio attended 6 weeks ago and could not get access to my treatment log (company wifi fault). She was a little too zealous with her manoeuvring of my 59 year old body to such a degree that my back went into spasm and I was absent from work for 2 weeks. Here is my problem, I do not wish to pursue any claim or anything of that nature, but that absence has meant I have triggered the absence policy and would put me on a first stage warning. Surely as a representative/third party of the company they should treat it as a works accident, which would mean it is exempt as a trigger under our policy. Granted it is not an accident but it is an injury caused by a third party paid for by the company. After all I would not have had to have any physio work if it was not for their negligence in the first place. Am I just wasting my time with a grievance to argue the point out? Thanks for reading, any advice would be appreciated.
