    Most dangerous machinery: Grinding machine


    Have you had an accident at work involving machinery?

    Although using big, heavy machines at work may seem fun and adventurous, it can also be very dangerous if not used in the correct way or when the appropriate health and safety training has not be given.

    On the other hand, even when all necessary measures have been taken accidents do happen, and it is in these cases that Accident Advice Helpline and their legal team can offer their services to make sure that you receive the right compensation in the aftermath of your accident.

    What precautions should be taken with a grinding machine?

    This machine is very abrasive and therefore it can be one of the most dangerous pieces of machinery to use. The consequences of one slip can cause long-term damage. A few things to remember are:

    • Always wear safety goggles when operating this machinery.
    • Check grinding wheels for cracks before using it.
    • Do not adjust the machine when it is in use.

    What can I do if I suffer an injury with this machine?

    It is very important to remember that accidents at work should not be brushed under the carpet, and through contacting Accident Advice Helpline you can be assured that your case will be taken seriously and this will not happen.

    Can I claim for work accident compensation if the accident was my fault?

    If you were the cause of the accident, i.e. you knew the dangerous aspects of the machinery, and what to do to avoid any such incidents, and still put yourself in a vulnerable position then you will not be eligible to make a claim. If, however, the accident is someone else’s fault this is where our no win, no fee solicitors can take on your case and help you to the best of their ability.
