    Accident in Oldham?

    Health & Safety Executive case studies repeatedly reveal instances of workers injured at work in Oldham. The most recent of these cases in October 2013 involved a worker losing two fingers at a tissue manufacturer’s plant. While the number of incidents in Oldham is by no means greater than those of other areas, it does highlight how easy it is to fall victim to workplace accidents anywhere in the country, especially if employers fail to comply with relevant rules and regulations.

    The reason for this workplace injury

    The above-mentioned worker lost his fingers because safety guards meant to protect him against work injuries were not in place. Not only were the guards missing, but the company had deliberately taken steps to over-ride essential cut-out switches and electrical locks to enable the machine to operate without them.

    Employers and accidents at work

    This company blatantly disregarded relevant health & safety laws requiring employers to protect workers against work-related injuries by maintaining equipment/machinery properly; preventing access to dangerous machine parts and ensuring that safety guards, protective equipment and so on are provided, in place and used. Judging by other Oldham case studies, this was not the first work-related accident caused by an employer in this area failing to comply with relevant laws.

    Work injury compensation

    In every one of these cases, the workers injured by accidents in their workplace due to their employers failing to meet minimal health & safety standards were entitled to claim for industrial injury compensation. If you were injured while working in Oldham or anywhere else because your employer and/or other employees disregarded safety regulations and procedures, you, too, may be eligible to claim for compensation.

    Potential of no court hearings being necessary

    More often than not, they can also bring cases to conclusion without the need for court hearings. As the circumstances of each case are different, it is obviously not possible to guarantee this, or even predict exactly how long it will take to settle a claim or how much compensation will ultimately be awarded.
