    Dealing with hazardous materials like liquid ice


    If you work in a job that requires dealing with hazardous material, it’s essential that your employer takes the relevant steps to protect you from accidents at work.

    If you’’ve had a work accident, through dealing with hazardous material or otherwise, and you’’ve been injured through no fault of your own, why not give Accident Advice Helpline a call? We can help you to claim the work accident compensation you deserve.

    Dealing with hazardous material

    Some occupations involve dealing with hazardous material on a regular basis. If your job involves working with chemicals or materials which carry a risk of injury, it’’s important that you follow safety tips to protect you from work injuries.

    Liquid ice is one material which may cause problems. In the last few years, liquid ice, also known as liquid nitrogen, has become a popular feature in kitchens looking to produce standout, ground breaking dishes, meaning chefs are regularly dealing with hazardous materials like liquid ice.

    Following in the footsteps of pioneers such as Heston Blumenthal, experimental chefs across the country are using liquid ice to create dramatic effects on a plate. You may also encounter liquid ice if you work in research or chemical engineering.

    If you work with liquid ice, it’s essential to be aware of the potential risks involved. Examples of injuries which may result from working with liquid ice include:

    • Frostbite
    • Cryogenic burns (burns caused by freezing)
    • Asphyxiation
    • Stomach problems
    • Skin irritation
    • Eye injuries and vision problems

    What should you do if you get injured at work?

    If you’’ve been injured at work and you weren’’t at fault, you have the right to claim compensation. Compensation payouts can help to ease pressures created by losing income as a result of taking time off work. When you’’ve had an accident at work, you must
    report it to your employer. You should also seek advice from a doctor.
