    Most dangerous careers: Metal crafters

We understand the risks involved in almost all occupations, and although we are primarily a law firm dedicated to pursuing justice for our clients, we also take a proactive role in keeping the public informed of potential dangers including the chances of injuries in their place of work. In this article, we take a closer look at one of the most dangerous occupations, metal crafting.

    Metal crafting and work-related injuries

    Ranked at number nine on graduate-fasttrack’s 25 most dangerous careers, metal workers are exposed to a number of health and safety risks in the workplace. In the course of their daily work duties, metal crafters are exposed to a number of harmful chemicals which can have both short-term and long-term health risks. In addition to the chemical exposure, metal crafters often work in extremely high temperatures needed in order to make materials easily malleable for production. The combination of these two factors means that metal workers are at a serious risk of suffering a work-related injury. If you work in the metal crafting industry, it is important to adhere to a robust health and safety code in order to reduce the chances of an injury or accident occurring.
